Synopsis for "Combat Kelly"
1953: The Communists are testing a new missile dubbed "The Worst Weapon" which when exploded over enemy vehicles it generates enough heat to melt them. The latest test is witnessed by Combat Kelly and Cookie Novak who are shocked at the power of this new weapon. Military brass meets to discuss the new weapon and they soon discover the location where the weapons are being manufactured. However when the military sends a bomber to destroy it the crew find that the Chinese have built a prisoner of war camp around the factory, so that any attempt to destroy the factory will kill UN soldiers who have been captured.
The commanding officer calls in Combat Kelly and Cookie Novak and assigns them to break out the captured soldiers so that the bombers can destroy the enemy base as well. That night, Combat and Cookie are air dropped into the area with a radio. After burying the radio the two soldiers march toward the enemy factory. After dispatching some sentries, they begin digging into a hill below the base and dig a tunnel into the prisoner of war camp. They then quietly evacuate it and rush back to where the radio is hidden. With the soldiers safe, Combat radios back to base that their mission is a success and the factory is destroyed by bombers. As the Worst Weapon takes years to manufacture the communist armies will not have time to build more until the war is over.

With the enemy slowly distracted, the American soldiers then storm the pill box. However, the Nazis are ready for them and get the drop on Combat and the others, taking them prisoner.
