Once again it's the cast that catches your eye in this episode more than the story itself, even though it is another Rod Serling thought provoker from the wartime period of the Second World War. This is a three sided coin if ever there was one. The washed out, war-tired battalion can't find the gumption to make any further attacks on their enemy, who are pinned down but also in the same boat. Then the young gung-ho lieutenant shows up and wants to make his mark, insisting that his troops make the effort capture or kill their Japanese enemy. However, before the attack can take place, the lieutenant finds himself in the Japanese army some three years previous to his own timeline, and he himself is now Japanese!
Dean Stockwell, whose career is long and creditable, makes a good fist of his role as the lieutenant, while a young Leonard Nimoy pre-Star Trek is also present within the story.
Rating: High noon in the Twilight Zone. 4/5.
