    Jaws of the Enemy

    In the summer of 1942, the American Navy is on the offensive and the first strike is in the Solomon Islands, north of Australia. USS Enterprise supports the first American invasion of World War II as U.S. Marines storm ashore at Guadalcanal. The Japanese strike back with a vengeance and in a hellish slugfest the Enterprise suffers her worst battle damage yet.

    May 20-26.

    Americans suffer terrible losses on Okinawa as they continue their advance. It's the last stepping stone on the way to mainland Japan. The Pacific island's capture is deemed vital by the Allied High Command. The region is hit by torrential rain and the battlefield becomes a quagmire. Meanwhile, US bombers continue to pound mainland Japan. Submarines have isolated the country from the outside world. In the Philippines, Japanese troops desperately try to hold the Wawa Dam on the Marikina River, following the successful US assault on the Ipo Dam on Luzon a few days earlier. In Europe, several high-ranking Nazi officials are arrested, including Heinrich Himmler, one of Hitler's most notorious and brutal henchmen. Soon after, Himmler commits suicide. Join us for a week-by-week account of activities in both theaters of war as WWII nears its end in Europe and continues to rage across the Pacific.

    Friedrich Paulus: The Defector

    As commander of the Sixth Army, Friedrich Paulus's name is forever linked to the devastating defeat at Stalingrad. After his troops were encircled and he futilely requested an order to evacuate, Paulus radioed a cynical thanks to the entrapped and surrendered. We peruse the decisions that led to the field marshal's "treason".

    Ernst Udet: The Devil's General

    As the model for Carl Zuckmayer's famous play "The Devil's General", the fate of the famed WWI ace lingered on in German postwar memory. Promoted by Goering from cockpit to desk of Chief Air Inspector General, Udet became scapegoat for Luftwaffe defeats. See how his wounded feelings led to a "heroic" death--a covered-up suicide.

    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.

    Aftershock: Beyond The Civil War

    Despite common belief, the Civil War does not end in 1865, and the blood of many Americans continues to flow freely. It is a period known as "Reconstruction." America is supposed to be reuniting and healing its wounds, but what emerges is a picture of murder, terrorism and chaos as "free" black men and women remain enslaved by a South that does not completely surrender. Insurgencies led by ex-Confederate soldiers rip through every southern state. America's first terrorist group, the Ku Klux Klan, is formed. Hundreds are butchered in citywide race riots, like the infamous New Orleans Massacre of 1866. Counter-insurgency groups form, like the Lowry Gang, who fights a guerilla-style battle against Confederates and northern carpetbaggers like D.P. Upham, who battles the Klan in Arkansas. All Americans feel the Civil War's aftershocks for years, while some believe its tremors are felt even today.
