Garrison's Gorillas (1967-1968)

Garrison's Gorillas was a World War II television series which aired for 26 episodes from 1967 to 1968. The series followed Lieutenant Craig Garrison (Ron Harper) an US Army officer who led a covert group of operatives comprised mostly of American prisoners, on missions behind enemy lines in the European theater. The series was actually a spinoff from an unaired episode of Combat! and premiered during the height of the popularity of the film The Dirty Dozen.

The following weapons were used in the television series Garrison's Gorillas:


Luger P08
