    06 - Light Off-Road Vehicles/Battlefield ER/Drones

    When the Navy SEALs needed a better way to travel the desert, they asked Chenowth Racing to build a car that could stand up to the desert. Host Hunter Ellis shows off their DPV (Desert Patrol Vehicle) at the Baja 1000. Next, he sees how battlefield medicine provided lifesaving changes in emergency medicine--from cutting-edge triage to "smart" bandages, and how UAVs (Unmanned Air Vehicles) have moved from military to myriad uses, including law enforcement, Hollywood, and even archaeological digs!

    Anchors Aweigh.

    For the sailors who fought in World War II, combat at sea differed radically from any previous conflict. The jobs they performed were far more complex and technically more demanding than ever before, and the threats they faced were much more lethal. Utilizing vivid color film and photographs unearthed from archives and personal collections, along with firsthand accounts from veterans, we recall the remarkable true stories of these sailors and the battles they fought. Peter Coyote narrates.

    February 18-24.

    The battle for Iwo Jima begins--one of the bloodiest of World War II. During Operation Detachment, fighting becomes a brutal frontal attack of hand-to-hand combat. Both the portable and mechanized flamethrowers as well as LVTs (Landing Vehicle, Tracked) were vital during the intense battles on the volcanic island. Meanwhile in the Philippines, US forces completely surround the center of Manila, as the tempo of the Japanese atrocities increases. Before long, General MacArthur will make an emotional return to Corregidor Island. Follow the action in this series that details, week by week, the last six months of WWII and explores the high and low points of the march to war's end.

    Ball Turret Gunners

    In war, certain missions demand the most and constitute much of the legends of bravery. Journey back to the Second World War when fearless airmen manned the B-17s' belly guns--glass bubbles that at any moment could become their coffin. The ball turret gunners called their work "flying the ball", others called it crazy!

    The Maginot Line.

    The Maginot Line, a defensive string of forts with enfilading firepower, was built by France between WWI and WWII. Conceived by Minister of War Andr Maginot, it was meant to forestall another German invasion until troops could arrive. But the French began to think of the line as a substitute for manpower. When Belgium declared neutrality and exposed France's flank, Germany was able to sidestep the line. We'll visit the "impregnable" line's forts, observation turrets, and underground railroads.

    B-29.

    In 1948, a B-29 Superfortress took off from California on a research mission carrying a strange piece of scientific equipment--the Suntracker. But when the plane crashed into Lake Mead, Nevada, the Suntracker was lost. And all records saying what it was or what the plane was studying were also lost. Now, archaeologists from the National Park Services' Submerged Resources Center explore the wrecked bomber, submerged under 200 feet of water, and learn that it was at the forefront of Cold War science.

    Soldiers for Hire.

    Once called mercenaries, highly trained killers have offered their deadly services for a price--from ancient Rome to the War on Terror. Today, they've marched from the back pages of Soldier of Fortune magazine to form vast corporations with the power of the most advanced militaries. The payday for these private soldiers has reached $100-billion annually! Unregulated by governing forces, they wage war for those who can afford it. Find out if they are the future of conflict resolution in our 2-hour special.

Rick Schroder stars as battalion leader Major Charles Whittlesey, the civilian-turned-soldier who won the Congressional Medal of Honor for keeping his outnumbered troops alive and fighting in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

    American Enters the War.

    In this 4-part series, we explore the courage and heroism of American soldiers in Vietnam, both on land and in the air, as they faced an unrelenting enemy during the first few years of US involvement in what would become the Vietnam War. In late 1965, President Lyndon Johnson ordered large numbers of troops to South Vietnam to prevent what he thought was the takeover of the country by communists from the north. We'll cover the bloody battles at Ia Drang Valley, Khe Sanh, Con Thien, and Dak To--from 1965 through 1967.
