    Alaska is America's last frontier; in mid-winter its landscape endures some of the most extreme cold weather on the planet. At the centre of its frozen wilderness rests "Delta Junction" the base camp of the US Army's Extreme Cold Weather Training Course. Hunter Ellis will endure the most challenging nine days of winter training where temperatures can reach -20 degrees Fahrenheit, with wind-chill capable of doubling and even tripling this figure. In these conditions, in as little as 6 minutes, exposed skin can become frostbitten. Hunter and a team of eight hand picked servicemen are going to be tested to their limits....and learn how to survive cold weather combat. Hunter and his team are transported directly into the Alaskan wilderness where their field training starts immediately. They're given basic lessons in rapid succession--how to move using snowshoes, skies and vehicles; how to operate weapons; how to survive the weather. Will they be able to work as a team and succeed?

    The film The Bridge on the River Kwai dramatized the WWII story of the Thailand-Burma Railway, yet it was largely fictional. Over 65,000 Allied POWs battled torture, starvation, and disease to hack the 255-mile railway out of harsh jungle for the Japanese. Finishing in only 14 months, many never returned from "The Railway of Death".
