    Boys' Toys: #10

    The military has developed some of the world's most sophisticated technology. In a special episode, host Hunter Ellis counts down his top-10 favorite "toys" from the season. Then, on the civilian side, Hunter examines the Draganflyer remote-controlled gyro-stabilized helicopter, custom choppers, jet skis, and hang gliders. On the tactical end, he checks out high-tech military wearable communications gear and armored clothing. On the practical side, he shows how special gear makes extreme sports safer.

    03 - MiG Alley

    Viewers will feel like they're in the battle, facing the enemy, while watching this new series that recreates famous battles using state of the art computer graphics. US Air Force fighter pilots risk their lives flying sleek F-86 Sabres above "MiG Alley", the most dangerous piece of sky in the Korean War. The high-speed twists and turns of history's first jet dogfights pit American aces Robbie Risner and Ralph Parr in the battles of their lives against nimble Russian-built MiG-15 fighters. First-hand accounts, rare archival footage and original shooting will supplement the remarkable computer graphics.

    Victory.

    For Allied servicemen, the last year of WWII proved the most difficult. Though victory was nearly assured, some of the roughest battles lay ahead. These men desperately wanted to return to home and loved ones. If they survived, what would the peace bring? WWII comes alive through a moving tapestry of letters, diaries, color film and photographs unearthed from archives and personal collections. Peter Coyote narrates.

    July 8 - July 14

    In Indochina, Chinese forces advance rapidly eastwards and cut the last link between the Japanese army and its garrison, while the US 3rd Fleet joins the attack on Tokyo for the first time. In Berlin, US and British troops take control of their allotted sectors from the Red Army. In turn, the two countries agree to share some control with the French. General Eisenhower issues a farewell message to all Allied troops in Europe. And our "Weapon of the Week" segment examines the US Grumman F-6 Hellcat Naval Fighter-Bomber that made its operational debut in the Pacific Theater on August 31, 1943. Two years later, the Hellcat was responsible for downing 5,174 enemy aircraft, nearly 75% of the US Navy's air-to-air kills. And we remember the life of US Admiral Chester Nimitz, who as the senior US naval officer during the war in the Pacific, held more responsibility within his hands than anyone else in American naval history.

    Dear Home: Letters from World War I.

    America fought in World War I for just over nine months, and yet more people were killed than were in the decade we fought in Vietnam. Close to 120,000 Americans died, and the country was forever changed. Learn what it was like in the trenches, hospitals, and frontlines from the soldiers, nurses, ambulance drivers, and postal clerks who were, as they wrote in their letters home, "Somewhere in France." Go back in time as we open a few of the millions of letters that crisscrossed the Atlantic.

    World War I Tech.

    The first bombing airplanes and widespread use of chemical weapons...earliest tanks...submarines. When Industrial-Age technology and war first mixed on a large scale, the end result was ruthlessly efficient destruction. World War One epitomized the dark underbelly of the Industrial Revolution. We see how technological achievements that streamlined 19th-century production, improved transportation, and expanded science were used to efficiently decimate a generation of soldiers in the early 20th century.

    Sub War.

    The U-2513 is what's known as a Type 21 German U-boat. In the 1940s, the Type 21 was a secret weapon that threatened to change the course of two wars: WWII, and then later, the Cold War. During WWII, German hopes were riding on it, and the Allies were terrified of it. After the war, the British, Americans, and Russians couldn't wait to get their hands on it. It was a weapon that had the potential to change the balance of world power and determine the outcome of the Cold War. Join our Deep Sea Detectives, John Chatterton and Richie Kohler, as they dive in over 200 feet of water some 95 miles offshore of Key West. There they investigate the wreck of a one of WWII's most significant naval innovations--a boat design that changed history.

    The True Story of the Screaming Eagles: The 101st Airborne.

    True story of one of the Army's most distinguished divisions, the 101st, which was formed in 1942, becoming the 101st Airborne in WWII. The 101st participated in D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge and was renamed the 101st Air Cavalry in Vietnam to mark the transition from parachutes to helicopters. Today the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) faces a new battle against terrorism on the battlefields in the Middle East.

    The Last Mission.

    Meet Jim Smith, a B-29 radio operator who flew in WWII's final mission. On August 14, 1945, en route to Japan's last oil refinery, B-29s from the 315th Bomb Wing flew over Tokyo, causing a blackout. On the ground, a group of rebellious Japanese military officers began a coup d'etat, and tried to find and destroy a recording slated to broadcast the next day--Emperor Hirohito announcing surrender. See how the air strike unwittingly collapsed the coup, saved Tokyo from nuclear strike, and ended WWII.

    Doenitz vs. Horton

    With Allied merchant ships transporting vital supplies and Nazi submarines patrolling in wolf packs intent on destruction, victory in the Battle of the Atlantic was essential for the invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe. In May 1943, as British Naval Commander Sir Max Horton and the Admiralty Submarine Tracking Room looked on, 43 merchant vessels in Allied Convoy ONS 5 left Britain for North America. Waiting for them was the largest wolf pack German Grand Admiral Karl Doenitz had ever deployed.
