Why it was canceled
Unlike some of the other reviewers, I (at 13) felt that "The Gallant Men" was a better show than "Combat!" (at least at that time), probably because it was a little more cerebral.

In my 8th grade English class (during the 1962-1963 season) I had the good fortune to have Roger Davis (Gibson) speak to us. (His kid brother was in our class.) He explained at the time that "The Gallant Men" was produced by Warner, while "Combat!" was produced by a production company owned by ABC, so likely "The Gallant Men" was fated to be cut at the end of the season. His prediction was accurate.

(He also explained how the producers kept salary demands in line -- any actor causing trouble could be written out as quickly as a gun can fire.)
