The Final War of Olly Winter was a television play featured on the CBS Playhouse series. Written by Ronald Ribman, it followed the tale of Olly Winter, an African-American Master Sergeant in the Vietnam War who is walking back to allied-controlled land following a battle with the Viet-Cong. Along the way, he meets up with a Vietnamese girl, an orphaned infant, and a dog. The program is basically a monologue as the character of Winter speaks to the girl about his experiences even though she cannot understand him.
