    The Three Wars of the Battleship Missouri

    Join us for a review of the incredible 51-year career of BB-63, the battleship Missouri, which fought in WWII, the Korean War, and Desert Storm. The crew that served on her last voyage could have been grandchildren of the men who fought on her first. Though this behemoth should have been a relic after WWII, she was continually upgraded, making her a formidable first-line warrior to her final day in commission. Launched in 1944, she was the last battleship built and the last in service. But her most enduring image came in 1945, when the Allies accepted Japan's surrender on her deck in Tokyo Bay. Now a national monument in Pearl Harbor preserving the details of that historic day, we step aboard with some of the great men who served in her during the long career of this icon of US naval history.

    The Big Red One

    The First Infantry Division, a.k.a. Big Red One, is the oldest and best division in the U.S. Army. These warriors fought more campaigns than any other U.S. division in World War Two. Elements of the division experienced action during the War of 1812, the Mexican War, and the Civil War and fired the first American shots in World War I. Decorated veterans of World War II will take the viewer back to the tense battlefields of El Guettar, North Africa, Troina, Sicily, Normandy (Omaha beach) France and their final shootout at the Falkenau concentration camp in Czechoslovakia.

    Iwo Jima.

    On February 19, 1945, men of the US Marine Corps invaded Iwo Jima. Over the next 36 days, the island became the site of a titanic struggle of sheer bloody will and determination. The Marines had to expel over 21,000 tenacious Japanese troops from a labyrinth of fortifications dug into the very bowels of this sulphurous island. Aerial photographs taken of the island during the war have now been layered over a 3-D contour map to create a CGI "model" of the island. But this is no computer game--it's a model of the actual island as the battle raged. The original high-resolution images allow viewers to track the conquest of the island, step by step, from the air. Individual stories of courage and heroism can be placed in the exact spot on the island where they took place. The Marines eventually secured the island, but half of the land combatants were killed or maimed. The battle assumed legendary status and earned its place in the collective consciousness of the American people.

    April 1-7.

    General Eisenhower has decided to halt the Allied advance at the Elbe River--just 60 miles west of Berlin. The Russians, therefore, take Berlin. Other forces head towards the south of Germany--to the Bavarian Alps--where they believe the Nazis will make their last stand. As the Allies advance throughout Europe, the initial stage of one of the largest and most devastating assaults in history begins--Operation Iceberg, the Battle for Okinawa, in which 172,000 soldiers and marines find themselves in a fight to the death against fanatical Japanese troops defending the island. Join us for a blow-by-blow, week-by-week look at the final months, days, and hours of World War Two.

    England's Wooden Walls

    During three 17th-century wars against a powerful Dutch fleet, the Royal Navy's war efforts are aided by Samuel Pepys' visionary reforms of the Admiralty, and by codification of naval tactics in "The Fighting Instructions". However, during the American Revolution, French admirals win astonishing victories over the British, ultimately helping free America. Then, a little-known Scottish landlubber stimulates a revolution in naval tactics and Admiral Horatio Nelson wins a stunning victory at Trafalgar.

    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.

    The King's Ships

    In an exciting miniseries exploring the dramatic rise and decline of English naval power, host Prince Andrew, Duke of York, examines Britannia's rule of the seas for several centuries. Witness creation of a Royal Navy under orders of King Henry VIII, the daring exploits of Sir Francis Drake's Golden Hinde, the revolutionary innovations of John Hawkins' race-built Galleons, backbone of Elizabethan naval power in the Age of Discovery, and the climatic showdown with Spain's Invincible Armada in 1588.

    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.

    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.

    Secrets of Hitler's Special Forces.

    Hitler's special forces, led by the ruthless Otto Skorzeny, carried out some of the most daring raids of WWII, including the first glider-borne assault, a paratroop aerial assault on the Island of Crete, and the audacious rescue of Italian dictator Benito Mussolini from his mountaintop prison. For the first time, the hidden world of these elite forces is uncovered as we feature never-before-seen footage filmed by German cameramen.
