    Night of the Long Knives

    One of Adolf Hitler's most brutal and dramatic exterminations came half a decade before the sins of the Holocaust. The SA was Hitler's army of thugs, but the head of the SA, Ernst Roehm, was threatening Hitler's rule. On June 29th 1934, Hitler ordered the SA leadership to appear for a meeting at the Hotel Hanselbauer. Without warning, the SS burst in, beginning 48 hours of bloodshed in which 1000 of the leading SA, including Roehm, were rounded up and slaughtered. This murderous deed became an ominous warning of what was to come. It is the single most significant episode in Hitler's rise to absolute power, and the set the stage for World War and the Holocaust.

    19 - Battle of Berlin

    On April 16th 1945, 9000 Soviet guns and more than a million Red Army soldiers unleashed a devastating bombardment on German troops manning the outer defenses of Berlin. Time had run out for Adolf Hitler's Third Reich. However, the battle-hardened veterans of the Red Army now face an enemy fighting with a ferocity born of desperation and at the heart of the defense is Hitler himself--refusing to admit defeat and demanding suicidal counter attacks. We use aerial reconnaissance photographs taken during the course of the battle combined with cutting edge computer graphics to create 3D models of Hitler's embattled capital city. For the first time it is possible to follow step by step the savage battle which brought the war in Europe to an end.

    Rise of the Fourth Reich

    The officers of the SS, Hitler's feared paramilitary unit, were the most notorious war criminals of WWII. Some were brought to justice after the war, but many were able to escape from Germany. A massive secret organization known as Odessa was reportedly formed to help them flee and rebuild a new Reich that would again rise to power. MysteryQuest will investigate by following the path of feared Nazis from Germany, to Austria, and Italy. The team will also travel to Paraguay where many of the Nazis reportedly hid while plotting their new rise.

    The Price of War.

    Even as WWII raged on, another, more desperate, battle was being waged just behind the front lines...a battle to save lives. The victories and losses of this crusade are the stories of the price of war. The fact that so many servicemen lived to tell the tale is a testament to the brave medical personnel who fought daily against death. WWII comes alive through a moving tapestry of letters, diaries, color film and photographs unearthed from archives and personal collections. Peter Coyote narrates.

    An oral history of the shocking abuse inflicted on U.S. and Filipino POWs as their Japanese captors marched them day and night, without food or medicine, for over 50 miles. Many died en route to the camp, but many more were shot, bayoneted, or beheaded by prison guards. We follow one survivor as he returns to Bataan for the first time.

    Guns of Mauser

    The Mauser bolt-action rifle is the most important military shoulder arm ever made. Mauser's bolt-action system, perfected in 1898, was so good, no significant improvements were ever made to it. We tell the story of German gunmaker Paul Mauser's search for perfection in weaponry and the company's odyssey through two world wars.

    An examination of the weapons that battled through surf and snow, dense jungle and choking dust...the guns of the American GI. Though WWII introduced instruments that pierced the dark and weapons that released the power of the atom, the infantryman's guns were designed decades before; but in dependability they were unequaled.

    Homefront

    The millions of combatants in the various armed services of WWII bore the brunt of the devastating war, but the civilian populations of the countries involved also endured their share of hardship and sacrifice. We see how they bravely shouldered their duties and suffered overwhelming burdens as their homelands were embroiled in "total war". WWII comes alive through a moving tapestry of letters, diaries, color film and photographs unearthed from archives and personal collections. Peter Coyote narrates.

    The War of 1812: the Chesapeake and the Shannon.

    In 1812, the US and Great Britain are once again at war. American "super frigates" win a series of crushing naval victories over the British Royal Navy warships. Americans are jubilant. Frigate captains are the celebrities of their day. On June 1, 1813, Captain James Lawrence sails out of Boston Harbor on the USS Chesapeake to take up a challenge from the British frigate HMS Shannon. Lawrence has already proven to be a brave and talented naval officer. But aboard the Shannon, British Captain Philip Broke has other ideas. At almost six in the afternoon, the fighting starts and lasts just 11 minutes. At the end, the Chesapeake is taken, 103 men are dead, and the US captain lies mortally wounded. Why was the battle so ferocious and bloody? How did the British win such a crushing victory against the odds? Scientists and historians combine efforts to solve the mystery.
