    Specialty Boats/Medevac Helicopters/Spy Gear: #7.

    Hunter Ellis heads to sea and learns about an intriguing array of watercraft for both consumer and military use, then takes to the sky aboard a high-tech MedEvac helicopter--with roots that go back to WWII flying ambulances. Espionage has been part of war as far back as 1800 BC, and Hunter checks out historic spy gear at the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., teams up with a private investigator to check out new gumshoe technologies, and learns tradecraft tips from CIA masters of disguise.

    Luftwaffe's Deadliest Mission

    In the face of the wholesale destruction of their homeland, young Germans were motivated to destroy American bombers by any means necessary. On April 7, 1945 a volunteer unit called the Sonderkommando ELBE takes to the sky with one goal in mind--use their own aircraft as battering rams to destroy American bombers. Rare interviews with the German pilots who mounted these attacks will offer an unprecedented look into the mindset of these ram-pilots.

    Fueling the Fire.

    During WWII, the leaders of the US military challenged themselves to create the most advanced supply system in the history of warfare. The servicemen who fought the supply war played a critical, and under-appreciated, role in achieving victory. Without them the Allied war machine would have ground to a halt. Peter Coyote narrates this compelling journey into WWII through the eyes of those who lived it, using color film and photographs unearthed from archives and personal collections.

    March 25-31.

    Allied troops continue Operation Plunder, their thrust across the Rhine into Germany's heartland. Realizing the situation is hopeless, thousands of German troops surrender. The race to Berlin continues, and disagreement over their strategy plagues the Allies. Hitler is now holed up in his Berlin bunker, totally divorced from reality. In the Pacific, fighting finally comes to a head on Iwo Jima. As US Marines close in around them, 200 Japanese soldiers make a last desperate mass suicide--or banzai--charge at the Americans. The attack on Okinawa begins.

    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.

    The Samurai.

    The knights of medieval Japan, the Samurai held power for over 700 years. Ferocious in combat, these masters of sword and bow were bound by an unforgiving code of ethics. Their legacy of martial artistry, ceremony, self-discipline, and tenacity persists. Explore the history and mystery of this elite warrior class as present-day Samurai demonstrate their ancient skills in this 2-hour special, and historians and experts examine the meaning and ritual of Bushido--the way of the warrior.

    Hunting Nazi Fugitives.

    For many years, the Odessa was thought to be a fictional organization that helped Nazi war criminals escape Allied justice. But in truth, many of the most brutal murderers of WWII lived to see the old age that they had denied their victims. How did they escape justice? Is it possible that Allied authorities were complicit in their escape? We reveal how known killers were secreted down ratlines through Europe to South America, where many used their deadly training to support militaristic regimes.
