    High Impact: M-16

    Born in the high-tech labs of the aerospace industry--and tested on the muddy battlefields of Vietnam--the M16 has become America's ultimate weapon. It's been used by SWAT teams on the mean streets of LA and Special Forces serving in Iraq. Now we're going to take you inside this incredible rifle, reveal the secrets of its design and construction and show how it's evolving to tackle America's newest challenges.

    The Air War

    The untold story of the American 8th Air Force's bloody battle to defeat the German Luftwaffe in the months leading up to D-Day. Told through the gripping, first person accounts of three American airmen and Stars & Stripes reporter Andy Rooney, this special showcases breathtaking aerial combat--original, color footage, never before seen by most Americans--of the B-17s Flying Fortresses, P-47 Thunderbolts and P-51 Mustangs on missions such as Regensburg, Schweinfurt and Berlin. Never-before-seen 8mm footage of the airmen on the bases, the devastation in Germany, and the Luftwaffe perspective is also highlighted. Flying 25,000 feet above the earth in oxygen-devoid air, and temperatures as low as 50 below zero, the 8th Air Force fought a war unlike anything ever before experienced. By the end, they would suffer more than 26,000 combat deaths--more than the US Marines lost in all of World War II. Narrated by Emmy nominated actor, Rob Lowe.

    March 11 - March 17.

    Join us for a detailed, week by week look at the last six months of World War Two. In this episode, we begin in the Pacific Theater where American bombers continue their assault on mainland Japan. The B-29s blitz and the US Air Force's new low-level bombing tactics using incendiary bombs prove deadly for the Japanese. General Curtis LeMay hopes to force a Japanese surrender before American ground forces are scheduled to invade the mainland. Meanwhile in Europe, the Allies are closing in. With the Rhine breached, most Nazis realize their days are numbered and the end is inevitable. Hitler leaves the Reich Chancellery for the last time, and 16-year-old Anne Frank succumbs to typhus in the Belsen concentration camp.

    Tank Crews

    During WWII, American tank crews duked it out with Nazi Panzers in a high-explosive duel to the death. The German tanks had thicker armor and better guns than the mainstay of the U.S. armored forces, the M-4 Sherman. For many crewmen, the Sherman lived up to its nickname as a steel coffin. But what the tanks lacked in firepower and protection, the crews made up for in guts and good old-fashioned Yankee ingenuity. We'll meet some of these armored warriors from WWII.

    Challenger Tank.

    When this 60 tons of high-tech military hardware rumbles onto the battlefield at nearly 40 mph, there's nowhere for the enemy to hide. Behind its impenetrable armor lies one of the most effective computerized weapons systems. Its main weapon--an awesome 120mm rifled gun that can take out a football-sized moving target three miles away. Men who serve in this metallic monster claim the hard-hitting warhorse is the world's best battle tank. An underdog during military competitions in the late 1980s, the EM Challenger /EM proved itself in Operation Desert Storm and was back in action for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Unique archive film, riveting reenactments, extraordinary interviews, and dramatic computer graphics tell the story of this British battlefield heavyweight and the men who have taken it into the heat of battle.

    One aircraft in the U.S. arsenal best typifies the will to win. Using the latest and most sophisticated computerized technology, the F-18 Hornet is now one of the foremost fighters of the 21st Century. Once a plane that nobody wanted, today it's the principal Navy and Marine fighter-attacker--with a flick of a switch, it transforms from bomber to fighter. Interviews with pilots and crews, combined with archive film and color reenactments, take you inside the cockpit of this multi-role aircraft.

As we explore the high and low points of the march to war's end, we paint a comprehensive step-by-step account of the crucial decisions and personalities that culminated in Allied victory. In this episode, Operation Lumberjack, the assault into the Rhineland by General Bradley's US 12th Army Group, is in full swing. In Berlin, Hitler announces that all males born in 1929 must be conscripted for military service. To the south, Patton's lead armored division has progressed over 40 miles, taking 5,000 German prisoners. And Allied Supreme Commander Dwight Eisenhower now must decide where to make his main crossing of the Rhine. In the Pacific, US firestorms torch Japan's capital city.

    Marine Raiders

    At the dawn of WWII, the U.S. Marine Corps activated four elite Raider commando battalions to confront the Japanese forces that threatened to engulf the Pacific. From 1942 to '44, these fast, hard-hitting, lightly equipped assault units conducted surprise hit-and-run raids on the enemy. From Midway to Tulagi Island, Makin to Guadalcanal, New Georgia, and Bougainville, the U.S. Marine Raiders helped destroy Japanese supremacy on the ground and paved the way to Allied victory in the Pacific.

    Ringing Down the Curtain.

    In this hour, we zero in on the Cambodian incursion of 1970 and the Easter Offensive in 1972. When Richard Nixon took office in 1969, he promised to reduce involvement in Vietnam. But as he withdrew troops in Vietnam, the president simultaneously orchestrated an invasion into Cambodia. Though a military success, it set off a firestorm of protest at home. Then, on Easter Sunday 1972, North Vietnamese swarmed into South Vietnam, surprising US and South Vietnamese troops.

    Heavy Metal: Apache Helicopter.

    For enemy combatants, the first thing heard is a thunderous noise. The ground trembles, sand and trees whip-up into a storm. If they should see it, its huge rotor blades, missile pods, and giant optical eyes are reminiscent of a massive, deadly insect. For many, it's the last thing they ever see--the AH-64 Apache Attack Helicopter. Developed during the Cold War, this incredible aircraft is now the most powerful and feared helicopter in the world. Able to dive into action at over 200 mph, it can deliver a devastating firestorm of missiles or rockets. With its 30mm cannon, it can attack tanks, armored vehicles, and troops with razor-sharp accuracy. Using unique archive film, detailed reenactments, and extraordinary interviews, we fly into harm's way aboard these lethal aircraft.

    The End Game.

    The riveting story of the final American evacuation of Saigon in the last few weeks of April 1975, which culminated in the largest US helicopter rescue in history as US Marines saved almost 7,000 people--1,400 Americans and 5,600 South Vietnamese--in the hours before the city fell to the Communists. Former CBS News Saigon Bureau Chief Brian Ellis tells how he ran his own secret evacuation, helping South Vietnamese who worked for the US press leave the country.
