    Face to Face.

    Five out of every six men serving in WWII never saw combat, serving instead in the vast support services. But the men who were at the front lived through some of the greatest horrors of the human experience. For them, survival was all--surviving getting to the front, surviving attack, surviving combat. This episode reveals their constant struggle to stay alive. Peter Coyote narrates this compelling journey into WWII through the eyes of those who lived it, completely in color.

    May 27-June 2.

    Fighting on Okinawa intensifies as the Japanese begin their retreat. Enemy forces on the island of Borneo send hundreds of Australian and British soldiers on a death march across the island, while US forces continue to wipe out scattered opposition on the Philippines. In Europe, British troops oversee the transfer of thousands of Nazi sympathizers from Russia to Yugoslavia. And the continent's food shortage is now a top priority in Washington. In this episode of our week-by-week overview of the closing months of WWII, we'll profile US General Simon Bolivar Buckner and highlight the P-51 Mustang escort fighter.

    Born into War.

    Flanked by two oceans, America's fortunes would rise and fall on the exploits of a strong navy, which suffered disasters, but stood undefeated at the end of the 20th century. In a rip-roaring look at history's mightiest navy, Part 1 sees the Continental Navy battle the Royal Navy in the Revolutionary War, and later the fledgling US Navy take on England again in the War of 1812. The Navy is split by the Civil War, but a steel, steam-powered Navy arrives just in time for the Spanish-American War.

    07 - The Zero Killer

    It's 1943 and the skies over the Pacific are filled with the infamous Japanese Zero fighter. They are decimating all American aircraft; no allied plane can match Japan's deadliest fighter plane. The American Navy rushes to deploy a new fighter to take on the unstoppable Zero...the F6F Hellcat. The Zero has met its match. Now, you're in the cockpit with legendary dogfighters Robert Duncan, Hamilton McWhorter and Alex Vraciu, whose epic dogfights blazed a new chapter in the annals of aerial warfare. We recreate famous battles using state of the art computer graphics. Viewers will feel like they're in the battle, facing the enemy. Rare archival footage, first-hand accounts and original shooting will supplement the remarkable computer graphics.

    The French Revolution.

    18th-century France was the world's wealthiest nation with the most powerful king, best-educated population, and strongest army in Europe. But it also boasted an exploding national debt (partly due to the King's support of the American Revolution) and an increasingly restless middle and lower class. On July 14, 1789, the festering boil of discontent erupted when a ragtag mob of Parisians stormed the Bastille, seizing arms and gunpowder and instituting a decade of revolutionary ideals and a murderous cycle of carnage. The French Revolution shook the very foundations of monarchy, destroyed the last vestiges of feudalism, and planted the seeds of modern politics, diplomacy, and nationalism. Travel back to the heady days of the guillotine and meet the rebels and rebelled against, including Marie-Antoinette, Louis XVI, Maximilien Robespierre, Jean-Paul Marat, Georges Danton, and Charlotte Corday.

    Rescue at Dawn: The Los Banos Raid.

    Brandishing the stealth and cunning of a modern-day Special Forces operation, the Los Ba os raid is regarded as one of the most successful airborne raids of all time. On February 23, 1945, a combined force of US paratroopers, Filipino guerrillas, and amphibious tanks liberated over 2,000 POWs who faced a potential massacre by their Japanese captors. In this 2-hour special, we return to the Los Ba os Prison Camp with four soldiers who took part in the rescue and one of the liberated prisoners.

    Yamamoto vs. Nimitz.

    The Battle of Midway, fought in June 1942, occurred within six months of Japan's surprise attack against the American Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor. This pivotal clash proved the vital importance of the aircraft carrier for the Pacific conflict. Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto would rue the fact that the Pacific Fleet's aircraft carriers had been out to sea on December 7, 1941. His opponent, Admiral Chester Nimitz, would use that luck to his advantage during the forthcoming battle.

    18 - Deep Sea Exploration/Blimps and Dirigibles/Snow Gear

    All submariners share a nightmare--being trapped alive on the bottom of the sea. Host Hunter Ellis takes an in-depth look at the history and technology of submarine rescue, and at famed treasure hunter Mel Fisher's search for the treasure of the Nuestra Senora de Atocha, which went down in 1622. Next, Hunter examines the history of dirigibles and their use by the military and for civilian exploration. Then, he explores military application of snow gear, and plays with cool new commercial snow toys.

    The Battle of Tripoli

    "From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli." Everyone knows the first line of the Marine's Hymn, but few are familiar with the dramatic battle that inspired these famous words. We tell the remarkable story of William Eaton and his heroic but outrageous plan to overthrow the powerful Mediterranean nation of Tripoli and free 307 American hostages in 1805. Filmed aboard the USS Constitution in Boston harbor and on location in Morocco, we relive the US Marine's first battle on foreign soil.

    D-Day Destroyer.

    June 6, 1944--the destroyer USS Meredith joined the D-Day invasion of Normandy. Her 5-inch guns pounded German coastal batteries as American troops fought their way ashore at Utah Beach. On the night of June 7, the Meredith moved out into dangerous mine-infested waters to defend the Allied ships against a new threat, fast German torpedo boats. Shortly before 2 a.m., a huge explosion ripped through the destroyer. Did she hit a mine? Sail into the path of a torpedo? Or was the Meredith struck by a top-secret German glide bomb, the world's first guided missile? Teams of deep-water detectives use today's cutting-edge technology to make this wreck "tell its story", along with CGI graphics, expert interviews, archival materials, and dramatic reenactments.
