Another middle-of-the-road episode that is well enough written and acted, but just doesn’t grab me as one of the best around.
Rod Serling returns to his war theme as he tells the tale of William Fitzgerald, who begins to see a mysterious light pass over the faces of men who are about to die. As these start to come true, he obviously becomes a little bit unstable, and when he mentions it to his friend and superior he begins to think it may be battle fatigue. But the omens continue to come.
The tale comes to a predictable end, and though it is a tome about the inevitable death that surrounds war, there is no lightness in the episode to lift you as happens in the best Twilight Zone episodes.
Rating: Death in war is better off not being predictable. 3.5/5
