    Bunkers.

    From the earliest bunkers of WWI through the ultra-futuristic ones of tomorrow's wars, we trace the story of defensive fortifications. In the constant struggle to hold off ever more potent forms of attack, bunkers function in a variety of forms. Three mammoth block structures comprise a submarine bunker at Lorient, France, able to house 20 subs. We visit Churchill's Cabinet War Room and Hitler's Berlin bunker, as well as backyard Cold War bunkers and those that protect nuclear weapons themselves.

    Cruiser under Siege.

    July 1918--Just south of Long Island, the crew of the armored cruiser EM USS San Diego /EM , en route to New York City to join a Europe-bound convoy, reports a dull thud ringing in the hull and explosions in the boiler room before the warship sinks. In his final log entry, the captain attributes the initial explosion to a torpedo. A German U-boat was in the area and her captain took credit for the sinking; but the EM U-156 /EM itself sank with the conclusive evidence--her captain's log. According to the U.S. Navy, a German-laid mine ignited the initial explosion. But in 1999, declassified Soviet documents revealed new evidence describing an onboard German saboteur set to destroy the ship and disrupt the convoy. Did a torpedo, mine, or spy sink the EM San Diego /EM ? Host John Chatterton and detectives dive for the truth.

    USS Enterprise

    The original Enterprise, CV-6, gained immortality as "The Fighting Lady" of WWII. A dwarf among modern carrier, the "Big E" was a main target of the Japanese at Pearl Harbor and barely away at sea when the blow fell. Miraculously spared, she became the war-long leader of America's naval counterattack, playing key roles in decisive battles of the war. Despite her glorious past she is sent to the scrap yard, but redemption comes in 1957 with the launching of CVN-65, her great namesake and the world's first nuclear-powered carrier. From then until now Enterprise has been a mainstay of American strength and today she remains on the high seas in the front lines of American's military engagements.

    Nuremberg: Goering's Last Stand

    The dramatic and largely untold story of the year-long psychological duel between U.S. Colonel Burton Andrus, Commandant of the Nuremberg Jail and the Rechsmarschall of Nazi Germany and Hitler's heir, Hermann Goering. Goering came to prison a drug-addled man weighing 264-pounds, accompanied by a valet and 16 pieces of matching luggage. Three months later, drug free and 65-pounds thinner, he regained the mental acuity that made him a formidable political foe. Andrus, on the other hand, was a devotee of General George Patton, and a strict disciplinarian. He had been entrusted with a vital task direct from General Eisenhower himself -- to clean up Goering and get him ready for trial.
