    Naval Guns.

    Perhaps one of the greatest expressions of weapons, naval guns first encouraged nations to develop the concept of "sea power". From sail, to steam, to steel, the warships of the world exist for one purpose--to overpower the enemy at sea. Step aboard as we test the mighty force of enormous guns at sea.

    Rockets and Missiles

    These marvels of technology extend the reach and amplify the deadliness of the modern warrior. But their genesis came centuries ago--and legend has it that it all began with an accident! We trace the evolution of the rocket, from the first Chinese "fire arrows" to the latest supersonic, heat-seeking missiles.

    The Gunboats of Vietnam.

    During the Vietnam War, the U.S. Navy deployed the River Patrol Force--a fleet of armored gunboats and smaller motorboats--on a mission to deny the enemy use of Vietnam's 3,000 nautical miles of rivers, canals, and small streams in order to cut their supply lines from Cambodia and disrupt enemy base areas. The linchpin of the riverine strategy was smaller motor-powered fiberglass boats. These small, agile boats, originally designed as pleasure craft, were perfect for nighttime stealth missions.

    May 13-May 19.

    In Europe, the Nazi threat is all but gone as the "Big 3" nations begin to tackle the problem of restructuring the shattered continent. In the Pacific, the situation in Okinawa has turned into a bloody stalemate between the Americans and Japanese. Meanwhile, significant progress is being made in overcoming the enemy in the Philippines. The US also continues to soften the enemy's defenses on mainland Japan. In the US, shocking evidence of a Japanese/German bombmaking alliance ends up on the shores of New Hampshire--a timely and valuable discovery for the United States government and its atomic bomb project. Join us for another gripping hour of our series that takes a week-by-week look at the end of World War Two.

    Harris vs. Kammhuber

    When Arthur Harris was appointed Commander-in-Chief of RAF Bomber Command, he was convinced that a strategic bombing offensive could win the war and in March 1943 began an attack on the German industrial heartland of the Ruhr. One man stood in his way: Luftwaffe General Joseph Kammhuber, who set up a complex network of air defenses and met Harris's bombers with radar, searchlights, anti-aircraft weapons, and night fighters. The struggle was desperate, with heavy losses on both sides.

    Guadalcanal.

    A small island in the southwestern Pacific, Guadalcanal was the place the US chose to confront the Japanese on the ground for the first time in WWII. Here, beginning in August 1942, Americans and Japanese were brought face-to-face in close-quarter shootouts that became a turning point of the war. From the near-total annihilation of Colonel Frank Goettge's intelligence patrol to the battles of Bloody Ridge, both sides learned what the other was made of. The Japanese were willing to fight to the death, and the Americans were eager to offer them that chance. The victory ultimately belonged to the US, but in the man-on-man struggles that characterized the campaign, winning or losing became personal and the difference between survival and death. Experience the thick of battle from the perspective of soldiers from both sides.

    Leyte.

    October 20, 1944--US troops storm ashore on the island of Leyte. After two long years under Japanese occupation, the liberation of the Philippines has begun. The invasion triggers the Japanese Navy's last-ditch attempt to stop the American advance in the Pacific. But, in three days of desperate combat, the Americans finally beat back the Japanese attacks and write one of the most glorious pages in US Naval history. We'll offer new insight into this important WWII battle using aerial photographs that have been brought to life with the latest computer-imaging technology to create a 3-D model of the Philippines. Now, it's possible to follow both the US and Japanese fleets as they battle for supremacy in the waters around Leyte Gulf.

    May 6 -12.

    After nearly six years of conflict and the death of millions, Germany surrenders unconditionally. The war in Europe is over at last. In London, Paris, New York, and Moscow, people take to the streets celebrating victory. Denmark, Norway, and the Channel Islands are liberated. However, in the Pacific Theater there is still heavy fighting on Okinawa and in the Philippines. It's a matter of honor for the Japanese who cannot contemplate the shame of defeat and surrender. US General Simon Buckner is determined to keep up the pressure.

    The desert campaign in North Africa and Tunisia during WWII was the staging ground for a clash of arms between Field Marshal Erwin Rommel's Afrika Korps and General Bernard Law Montgomery's Eighth Army. We examine their strategies and plans as they fought their way to El Alamein in October and November 1942, and the very different fates that awaited them after the spectacular battle.

A 24-year-old legend at the top of his game, Manfred von Richthofen is up against a new generation of enemy aircraft designed to break the supremacy of the German Albatros, the Sopwith Triplane. It will demand all of the Red Baron's considerable skill just to survive.

    Battle of the Bulge.

    It was Hitler's boldest move. The Axis of Evil creates an 85-mile "bulge" along the Western front that extends from the North Sea down to Switzerland. Hitler's mission is to drive a wedge between the Allied armies in the north and south, retake the seaport city of Antwerp and claim victory. The Americans not only fight the Germans but the weather--minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit. In some places, the snow is knee deep. Foxholes become frozen tombs and frostbite takes 15,000 men off the line. After six weeks of hellish combat, the battle pulverizes Hitler's forces on the Western Front and aids the Allies in winning the war.

    Shot Down: The U2 Spyplane.

    In 1960, tension between the US and Soviet Union is rising and the two great powers seem on the brink of war. President Eisenhower proposes the "Open Skies Treaty" to allow mutual aerial reconnaissance, but the USSR rejects it. The US needs information on their nuclear capabilities. CIA pilot Francis Gary Powers is chosen to fly the U2, the greatest spyplane ever built, over the Soviet Union. At 11 miles above Earth's surface, where sky merges with outer space, Powers feels safe from missiles and jets. But at the last minute before takeoff, his plane is switched to the jinxed U2 360 on which something always seems to go wrong. After he enters Soviet airspace, the seemingly impossible happens: a surface-to-air missile explodes near the tail. With the U2 in a tailspin, Powers climbs out and parachutes to the Russian countryside. Captured, interrogated, and imprisoned, two years later, he's finally traded for a Soviet spy.
