    Wolfpack: U-Boats of WWII.

    They were Hitler's most effective and feared weapon--submarines that attacked in coordinated groups, like wolves. These stealthy predators sank thousands of Allied merchant ships, choking Britain in an economic stranglehold and devastating US coastal shipping. Top historians and US and German veterans provide insight into the strategies, tactics, and weapons used in the Battle of the Atlantic. We also hear from eyewitnesses to the 1942 torpedoing of the SS Gulf America off the coast of Florida.

    Deterrence from the Deep

    The story of the Navy's ballistic missile submarines or "Boomers"--from origin in the 1950s to preeminent status in the U.S. strategic nuclear deterrent forces. Today's Ohio-class subs are the most lethal warships ever created. We also look at the Fleet Ballistic Missile--from the first generation Polaris to the Trident II. Behind the scenes, we examine the command and control mechanisms and the complex authentication procedures required to release one, or all 24, of the sub's nuclear missiles.

    If unmanned aircraft are so good, why do we need pilots? Travel with R. Lee Ermey to Edwards AFB for a look at the latest in experimental planes. See how Scottish kids, afraid of the Bogey Man, gave rise to the pilot term for unidentified aircraft. Watch the first combat helicopter, the US YR-4B, flown in WWII by Lt. Carter Harman in Burma. See how forward observers direct artillery fire, and join Ermey as he demonstrates the Fairbairn-Sykes commando knife on his favorite target--a watermelon!

    #27.

    At Camp Pendleton, R. Lee Ermey checks out the Marines' 13,000 horsepower CH-53 Super Stallion heavy-lift helicopter, and a Korean War helicopter, the Piasecki H-21B Workhorse--aka the Flying Banana. He gives us the scoop on the Navy's "Crossing the Equator" ritual--a ceremony of creative hazing for "polliwogs"--and how the Seabees built runways in the middle of the Pacific in WWII. Lee explains the military phrase "the G-2" and troops at Fort Knox demonstrate the Abrams battle tank's firepower.

    Sicily

    July 10th 1943. The Allied armies launch the first major attack against Hitler's Fortress in Europe. Over the next thirty-eight days, half a million Allied soldiers, sailors and airmen will fight a bloody battle of attrition against German and Italian troops in one of the largest combined operations of World War II. Eleven months later, the men who were baptized in blood on this Mediterranean island would be hitting the beaches of Normandy and changing the course of history. Aerial reconnaissance photographs taken at the time have now been layered over a 3 dimensional map to create a CGI "model" of the island. For the first time these original high-resolution images allow the viewer to track the battle, step by step, from the air. Individual stories of courage and heroism can be placed in the exact location where they took place.

Go aboard the Coast Guard's latest and greatest--the multi-purpose 47-foot Motor Lifeboat (MLB); find out which and how many ships comprise a carrier battle group; learn why we call a tank a tank and not a toilet, and why the Sherman was considered a deathtrap; get a look at the M-16's replacement, the futuristic XM-29 rifle; and hear how WWII V-mail didn't talk, but kept letters flowing from the front to home.

    11 - Battle of Britain

    During the summer of 1940, the world held its breath and watched, as the British RAF and German Luftwaffe were locked in a battle to the death. It will last 114 days, take down almost 3000 aircraft, kill or wound 3800 aircrew and lead to the death of over 30,000 civilians. The German Nazi war machine had conquered all in its path, only Britain stood in its way to total European domination. Both British and German aerial reconnaissance photographs taken at the time have now been layered over a three dimensional contour map to create a CGI model of the battle. We use cutting edge technology, unique archive film, re-enactments and extraordinary interviews with the men who were there to tell the story of this historic battle.

    Battle of Alesia.

    In a bold move for political power, Julius Caesar invades Gaul. Using a strategy of divide and conquer, Caesar's army marches through Gaul and seems unstoppable. But then, a young Gallic warrior named Vercingetorix rallies the Gauls together to drive Caesar out of their land for good. Armed inside the Gallic fortress at Alesia, with thousands of warriors, it seems that Vercingetorix has the advantage when Roman and Gallic forces face off. But Caesar will not give up. He orders his troops to surround the fortress with a massive barrier. When the armies finally clash, it's a showdown that will determine the fate of Gaul.

    Boudicca: Warrior Queen.

    Julius Caesar invaded Britain in 55 and 54 BC, gaining submission of the six eastern Celtic tribes. As the Roman Empire's farthest flung province, its merchants enjoyed a healthy trade with Roman Gaul, and for about 100 years, the tribes were mainly left alone. But in 60 AD, a warrior queen named Boudicca rose in revolt. When her husband died, Boudicca became Queen of the Iceni. Roman administrators tried to control the Iceni by appropriating their land and disarming the tribe. After the Romans flogged Boudicca and raped her two daughters, she raised a mighty army believed to number over 100,000 and took the fight to the Romans.

    Spartacus.

    Spartacus is one of the Ancient World's most famous figures. A Thracian soldier, Spartacus was captured by Romans and sold as a slave for training as a gladiator. With 70 other gladiators, he escaped and hid on Mount Vesuvius, where he raised an army of rebel slaves and defeated two Roman legions. But Roman vengeance was soon delivered by Crassus, who put an end to Spartacus's desperate bid for freedom and crucified over 6,000 men along the Via Appia as warning to other slaves in 71 BC.
