    The AK-47.

    The Soviet Union developed the EM Avtomat Kalashnikova 1947 /EM , also known as the AK-47, at the dawn of the Cold War. It quickly gained worldwide notoriety as one of the most simple to use and deadliest guns of the 20th century. In a rare interview, its inventor Mikhail Kalashnikov discusses his design.

    June 10-16

    On Okinawa, US victory is now in sight. Japanese troops on the Pacific Island are mounting an increasingly desperate defense against the relentless advance of the US. In the Philippines, the Japanese are holed up in the Sierra Madre Mountains. In Frankfurt, Germany, Marshal Zhukov confers the Soviet Order of Victory--made of diamond-encrusted platinum--on Eisenhower and Montgomery. Eisenhower is awarded the Order of Merit--Britain's most prestigious honor--and is given the Freedom of the City of London. After warning Truman about the "iron curtain" falling over Europe, Winston Churchill is informed by the American President that the US cannot go back on the tripartite agreement for the post-war occupation of Germany approved by FDR. The withdrawal of American troops from the Eastern Zone will not be delayed. Soviet authorities start the forcible expulsion of ethnic Germans from the Sudetanland.

    Steel Walls of Freedom.

    Victories at the Battle of the Philippine Sea and Leyte Gulf crush the Japanese fleet, pushing it back toward the homeland. Then, following WWII, politicians cut back the Navy. During the Korean War, the Navy leads MacArthur's amphibious landing at Inchon, and assists Marines cut off by the Chinese counteroffensive. Under the stewardship of Admiral Rickover, the Navy modernizes and builds its first nuclear-powered superships, carriers, and submarines. But Vietnam puts the Navy to the test.

    Japanese Guns of WWII.

    As Japan bombed its way into the Pacific during WWII, Imperial soldiers carried pride, a sense of invincibility, and an arsenal of clumsy and outdated weapons. Convinced that the tactics and tools that led to victory over colonial enemies would be just as effective against the Allies, Japan would see its weaponry lead to defeat.

    June 3-9

    In this episode of our series focusing on the winding-down of the Second World War, US forces make further advances against the Japanese in the Philippines, while fanatical Japanese troops continue to hold out on the Pacific Island of Okinawa. King Haakon of Norway makes a triumphant return to his country after five years of exile. In Europe, the Big Four--the US, UK, Soviet Union, and France--meet to discuss the division of Germany into four main occupation zones. Meanwhile, Allied troops make several startling discoveries, and the Soviets announce they've found the charred remains of Hitler's body. The "Weapon of the Week" is the Goster Meteor, and the "Personalities of tbe Week", Stalin and de Gaulle.

    Fire and Water.

    By the time America enters WWI, the Navy boasts a powerful line of battleships--that arrive too late to fight. When the "Treaty for the Limitation of Naval Armaments" is signed, the Navy reluctantly scraps many ships. Meanwhile, Japan builds a formidable fleet and the Depression holds the US to an aging battleship line. Then, there is Pearl Harbor and Germany also declares war. We'll examine how the Navy builds itself back up and battles the Axis from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

    Dowding vs. Göring

    In June 1940, Great Britain stood alone against Hitler. In the aftermath of France's fall and the evacuation at Dunkirk, it was only a matter of time before Britain would face invasion. The Battle of Britain brought two commanders face-to-face with very different characters and styles--Air Marshal Sir Hugh Dowding, Commander-in-Chief RAF Fighter Command, and Hermann G ring, Commander of the Luftwaffe. Their personalities and conduct molded events that followed through the autumn of 1940.

    Hitler's Trenches

    World War I was the bloodiest war the world had ever seen. A young Adolf Hitler served in the trenches and tunnels of Belgium's Western Front. Join host Don Wildman as he explores the subterranean web where 24,000 Allied soldiers waited to ambush the enemy, to the indestructible fortress that endured thousands of bombs daily. Discover the underground that made World War I one of the most brutal wars in history... and turned Hitler into the terrifying madman of World War II.

    Patton vs. von Kluge.

    On July 25, 1944, in northwest France, 1,500 bombers of the American 8th Air Force, supported by a massive artillery strike, began concentrated carpet bombing on German defenses. The barrage signaled the start of Operation Cobra--the Allied attempt to break out from Normandy. General George S. Patton and his 3rd Army led the breakout and would be involved in a dramatic face-off against German Field Marshal G nther Hans von Kluge. If he succeeded, the Allies could advance towards Germany.

    Guns of Israel

    One of the youngest and smallest nations, Israel has produced some of the world's fiercest weapons. In 1952, shortly after its War of Independence, Israel unleashed the Uzi...a submachine gun that set the standard for nearly 50 years. Between 1950 and 1980, Israel fought three wars, and superior weapons became a matter of survival. We examine the Negev Machine Gun and the Galil Assault Rifle, designed to survive the rigors of desert warfare, and the Tavor 21, a lightweight 21st-century assault rifle.

    The Christmas Truce.

    WWI began in August 1914, and by December all thoughts of quick victory had faded. Fighting was most fierce in a thin strip of land called the Western Front. A system of trenches separated Allies from Germans, with the area in between known as No Man's Land. On Christmas Eve, an astonishing event began--up and down the Western Front, Allied and German soldiers met peacefully in No Man's Land. Actor Ioan Gruffud narrates this look at the fabled Christmas truce, filled with eyewitness accounts.

    Guadalcanal.

    On August 7, 1942, more than 19,000 Marines invaded Guadalcanal with orders to seize and hold the tropical island. In the first US offensive of the Pacific War, these young Americans took on the seemingly invincible Japanese and fought a series of bitter battles. Aerial photographs taken during the war have now been layered over a 3-D contour map to create a CGI "model" of the battlefield. But this is no computer game, rather a model of the actual island as the battle raged. These original high-resolution images allow the viewer to track the battle step-by-step. Individual stories of courage and heroism are placed in the exact spot where they took place. Using cutting-edge techniques, unique archive film, reenactments, and extraordinary interviews, we'll tell a story rarely heard.
