    Silent and Deep.

    As WWII raged across Europe and the Pacific, one branch of the US military went quietly about its business, moving with such secrecy that it was dubbed the "Silent Service". The elite submarine sailors endured an unique type of battle--with little chance of escape if disaster struck, the submarine itself often became a steel coffin. WWII comes alive through a moving tapestry of letters, diaries, color film and photographs unearthed from archives and personal collections. Peter Coyote narrates.

    April 29-May 5.

    Berlin falls. Hitler and Eva Braun, his wife of one day, along with some of his leading henchmen commit suicide. Dachau--one of the worst concentration camps ever--is liberated. German forces surrender to the Allies in Italy, Holland, Denmark, and northern Germany. Fighting continues in the south but is futile. Germany surrenders to the Allies. On Okinawa, the Japanese launch a massive counter attack against US forces. A Japanese balloon-bomb floats across the Pacific and kills six people in Oregon. The campaign in the Philippines draws to a close. These are some of the events that viewers relive in our detailed series that examines the final days of World War Two.

    Allenby vs. von Sanders

    The Battle of Megiddo proved to be the crowning moment of the Allied Middle Eastern campaign in the final months of WWI. Its outcome was decided by the swift and highly effective use of cavalry together with modern weapons and the brilliant use of surprise and deception in the plan devised by its commander, General Sir Edmund "Bull" Allenby. His opponent, General Otto Liman von Sanders, an exponent of the defensive, found his efforts to contain Allenby frustrated by a number of factors.

    02 - Air Ambush

    Legendary fighter pilot, Colonel Robin Olds, sets an intricate trap for the North Vietnamese MiG-21's. His Squadron, the Wolfpack, disguise their lethal F-4 Phantoms as vulnerable bombers. The MiGs scream in to challenge the Americans. The result is the most elaborate air sting of the war... code-name... Operation Bolo. First-hand accounts, rare archival footage and original shooting will supplement the remarkable computer graphics.

    Caesar: Conqueror of Gaul.

    In 58 BC, the Roman general and statesman Julius Caesar pushed north from Rome into the wild and unruly lands of the barbarians (current-day France), and in less than eight years, extended the border of the Roman Republic's territories as far west as the Atlantic, even making raids and incursions into Britain. The key element to Caesar's victory in Europe lay not in the superiority of the Roman war machine--the Gallic cavalry, horseman to horseman, was probably far superior to the Roman legions. Rome's military superiority derived from mastery of strategy, tactics, discipline, and military engineering. And there was no master of strategy greater than Julius Caesar. According to Plutarch, Caesar's campaign resulted in 800 conquered cities, 300 subdued tribes, a million slaves, and 3-million dead on the battlefield--all this, not to mention becoming First Man in Rome.

    William the Conqueror.

    William's story begins in Northern France with his accession as William of Normandy in 1035. Over the next 30 years, he solidifies his rule through marriage, diplomacy, battle, intrigue, and savage intimidation. His foes prove no match. He builds numerous castles and cathedrals in Normandy to legitimize his rule, while laying claim as the rightful heir of Edward the Confessor and the throne of England. But when Edward dies in 1066, he bestows heir status on the Anglo-Saxon King Harold of Godwin. An enraged William, feeling betrayed by Edward and Harold, seeks papal support of his claim to the English throne. When it is granted what follows is the first D-Day--but in reverse: William's invasion of England from France. Join us for a riveting look at the invasion and the innovations William brought to his new empire.

    Alexander the Great and the Devastating Catapult.

    Only Alexander the Great would have the audacity to attempt such a daring siege--the fortified island city of Tyre seems invincible, but his Macedonian troops are inspired and determined, and the young Alexander has a secret weapon--a machine created for the destruction of cities: the catapult. If Tyre falls, it will be a pivotal victory in Alexander's quest for a new empire--a key stop on a march that will cover more than 10,000 miles and span three continents.

    D-Day Tech.

    By the spring of 1942, Hitler had made a fortress of Europe, and the Allies began to plan the biggest invasion in military history. The history-altering success of the D-Day Invasion depended on innovative engineering and technological advances. This is the story of those scientific and mechanical breakthroughs--the overwhelming array of landing craft, specialized weapons, and ingenious electronics--used to breach Fortress Europe on June 6, 1944.

    D-Day Minesweeper.

    A month after the D-Day Invasion, when the Allies believed all was safe off the beaches of Normandy, the Minesweeper YMS-304 was blasted out of the water--with 100% casualties. The initial detonation tore apart the minesweeper, taking her down in only 63 seconds--the fastest sinking of WWII. What happened was a secret hidden for more than 60 years. Deep Sea Detective John Chatterton travels to Normandy to dive the remains of this tragic wreck with the help of French diver Bertrand Sciboz.
