What did the Wild Weasels do during the Vietnam War? What types of missions did river patrol boats take care of in Vietnam? How did the Green Berets get their name?

    At Camp Pendleton's sniper school, R. Lee Ermey pops off a few rounds of the Marine's super accurate M40A3 rifle, then takes on his old enemy, a watermelon, using a blowgun--a weapon in use for 40,000 years! Lee examines a WWII "Mulberry Harbour"--floating concrete caissons used to bridge the English Channel, weapons the French Resistance used against the Nazis, and improvements in frontline medical care. In our GI Jargon segment, he explains the military origin of the word "Berserk".

    14 - Breakout from Normandy

    July 10th 1944. For six long weeks since D-Day, Allied forces have been caught in a battle trying to breakout of the invasion beachhead at Normandy. In the East, the British and Canadian Armies are fighting to take the city of Caen, and have suffered over 26,000 casualties and in the West, the US forces, in just 12 days, lose over 10,000 troops. In a final throw of the dice, the Allied commanders come up with an audacious plan, operation Cobra. If successful, they will split the German forces and sweep into France. Aerial reconnaissance photographs taken at the time have now been layered over a 3 dimensional contour map to create a CGI "model" of the battle. For the first time these original high-resolution images, allows 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.

    Nazi Titanic

    To the Nazis of WWII, film was a weapon used to justify murder and even genocide. Joseph Goebbels, the head of the Nazi propaganda machine, personally commissioned The Titanic; he saw it as a potent weapon in demonizing the English. In his pursuit of creating what was to be the Third Reich's cinematic masterpiece he was ruthless. He had the first director murdered and poured in unrivalled resources even bringing troops back from the front to use as extras. The film was intended to show German valor and Allied weakness, but when it was finished it portrayed an entirely different message. It had become an allegory for Nazism itself. There was an all too apparent parallel of a country heading towards its own iceberg and sinking. The story of the Nazi Titanic had an unpleasant sting in its tail. The boat used to play the Titanic in the film, the Cap Arcona, was sunk by allied bombers with an even greater loss of life than the original ship.

    13 - Monte Cassino

    In the winter of 1943, an allied army of nearly 300,000 men invades Italy. Mussolini has surrendered, but Hitler and his feared paratroop regiments refuse to give up. At Monte Cassino, 60 miles south of Rome, the Allied forces under the command of General Harold Alexander come face to face with the fanatic defenders of Hitler's Third Reich. Will the sixth century monastery of Monte Cassino, now home to the Germans, become a casualty of war? Over the next six months more than a hundred thousand allied troops will be killed and wounded. Aerial reconnaissance photographs taken at the time have now been layered over a 3-D contour map to create a CGI "model" of the battles.

    Battle of San Juan Hill.

    When the American warship EM USS Maine /EM mysteriously blows up in Cuba's Havana Harbor, President McKinley declares war against Spain. An invasion force lands, including cavalry and an all-black infantry regiment. One of the units, led by an ambitious young Lieutenant Colonel named Teddy Roosevelt, takes the initiative. Armed with outdated rifles, this rag-tag contingent of 17,000 troops moves across hilly terrain to make a frontal assault up San Juan Hill. They face 10,000 troops led by Spanish Lieutenant General Arsenio Linares. Called the Rough Riders, their victory helps turn America into a world military power, and change the life of Teddy Roosevelt forever.

    Return to the scene of one Alexander the Great's most decisive battles, where he wrested control of the Persian Empire from Darius III. Using cutting-edge computer gaming technology, we recreate the Battle of Gaugamela in 331 BC. Host Matthew Settle ( EM Band of Brothers /EM ) travels to an area north of Babylon, handpicked by Darius for his cavalry-led army.

    Churchill's Secret Bunkers.

    During WWII, a vast complex of secret bunkers was constructed under the streets of London. Lost to time, this world was an important refuge from the nightly onslaught of Nazi air raids, but only now can we reveal the full extent of the scheme. The existence of Churchill's Bunker is no secret, but that there was an entire subterranean city, built to keep the British government running, is only now being revealed. Very little of this covert network, which also sheltered American General Dwight Eisenhower, has ever been revealed to the public. Now this lost world is brought back to life with cutting-edge computer graphic technology--the tunnels beneath the heart of London's great buildings; the underground command center from where the Battle of Britain was coordinated; the deep level, ultra-secure chambers that could withstand the most deadly weapons in the Nazi arsenal. Beneath the sidewalk, this program exposes wartime secrets we were never meant to know.

    Battle of Britain.

    One by one, European nations fall to Hitler. In 1940, the German dictator now sets his sights on Britain, and orders a devastating air attack on the nation as a prelude to a ground invasion. But the British are determined to fight back. With newly developed radar systems, tenacious fighter pilots, and Sir Winston Churchill's powerful messages, Britain takes the blows and valiantly counterattacks. Ultimately, it's the dramatic dogfights in the sky that destroy Germany's air superiority and sends them into retreat. Part documentary, part interactive game, viewers take the parts of Winston Churchill and his 700 EM Spitfire /EM and EM Hurricane /EM fighters, and Adolf Hitler with 1,260 bombers, 316 dive bombers, and 1,089 fighters.

    Cannae.

    Cannae, Italy, August 216 BC. In a classic example of double-envelopment maneuver, Hannibal inflicts the greatest ever defeat on the forces of Rome. A mighty Roman army, eight legions strong, marches out to crush the Carthaginian general on an open battlefield. Though Hannibal has far fewer men at his disposal, and none of his famous elephants, he manages to surround and slaughter the superior Roman force. See why Hannibal's military genius is still being lauded and taught in academies today. Hosted by Matthew Settle ( EM Band of Brothers /EM ).
