    Hitler and Stalin: Roots of Evil.

    An examination of the minds of two of the 20th century's most brutal dictators and mass murderers--Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin. Based on recent psychological and medical studies, the program explores the personalities of these ruthless leaders, who were directly responsible for millions of deaths--their paranoia, suspiciousness, cold-bloodedness, sadism, and lack of human feeling. Includes interviews with Martin Bormann's son and Hitler's butler.

    The Bielski Brothers

    Living in the Soviet Republic of Belorussia during World War II, Tuvia, Asael and Zus Bielski saved more than twelve-hundred of their fellow Jews from perishing in the Holocaust, yet their story has largely gone untold. The Bielski's built an elaborate village in the woods, from which they rescued Jews and mounted guerilla attacks against the Nazis. Their forest haven included a gun workshop, a bakery, a synagogue, a communal bath and even a theater company. Containing interviews with Bielski Brigade survivors in the United States, Israel and Great Britain, we proudly pay tribute to three of the greatest unsung heroes of the Holocaust.

    May 6 -12.

    After nearly six years of conflict and the death of millions, Germany surrenders unconditionally. The war in Europe is over at last. In London, Paris, New York, and Moscow, people take to the streets celebrating victory. Denmark, Norway, and the Channel Islands are liberated. However, in the Pacific Theater there is still heavy fighting on Okinawa and in the Philippines. It's a matter of honor for the Japanese who cannot contemplate the shame of defeat and surrender. US General Simon Buckner is determined to keep up the pressure.

    U.S. Guns of WWII.

    An examination of the weapons that battled through surf and snow, dense jungle and choking dust...the guns of the American GI. Though WWII introduced instruments that pierced the dark and weapons that released the power of the atom, the infantryman's guns were designed decades before; but in dependability they were unequaled.

    April 29-May 5.

    Berlin falls. Hitler and Eva Braun, his wife of one day, along with some of his leading henchmen commit suicide. Dachau--one of the worst concentration camps ever--is liberated. German forces surrender to the Allies in Italy, Holland, Denmark, and northern Germany. Fighting continues in the south but is futile. Germany surrenders to the Allies. On Okinawa, the Japanese launch a massive counter attack against US forces. A Japanese balloon-bomb floats across the Pacific and kills six people in Oregon.

    The target of a daring assassination plot by members of his military, Hitler nearly died at Wolf's Lair, his main wartime headquarters--just one of 15 known attempts on his life.

    The War of 1812: the Chesapeake and the Shannon.

    In 1812, the US and Great Britain are once again at war. American "super frigates" win a series of crushing naval victories over the British Royal Navy warships. Americans are jubilant. Frigate captains are the celebrities of their day. On June 1, 1813, Captain James Lawrence sails out of Boston Harbor on the USS Chesapeake to take up a challenge from the British frigate HMS Shannon. Lawrence has already proven to be a brave and talented naval officer. But aboard the Shannon, British Captain Philip Broke has other ideas. At almost six in the afternoon, the fighting starts and lasts just 11 minutes. At the end, the Chesapeake is taken, 103 men are dead, and the US captain lies mortally wounded. Why was the battle so ferocious and bloody? How did the British win such a crushing victory against the odds? Scientists and historians combine efforts to solve the mystery.

    German Small Arms of WWII.

    An evaluation of the evolution of German "small arms" from the end of WWI, when the defeated nation was denied the right to rearm by the Treaty of Versailles, to the end of WWII, after Hitler had again supplied the country with the means to wage war. See how Lugers, P-38s, and Mausers wrote an agonizing chapter in the gun's history.

    Waterloo.

    It's 10 o' clock on the evening of June 18, 1815. For the last 11 hours, a quarter of a million men have been fighting one of the most intense, bitter clashes in history--the Battle of Waterloo. As many as 50,000 men and 10,000 horses lie dead on the battlefield. The British Commander, the Duke of Wellington, greets Field Marshall von Blucher, Commander-in-Chief of the Prussian army. Their forces have achieved the unthinkable--the defeat of the legendary Emperor of France, Napoleon Bonaparte. How had Wellington achieved such a remarkable victory? Using the latest scientific techniques and historical analysis, we'll discover what gave Wellington the edge at Waterloo.

    Night of the Long Knives

    One of Adolf Hitler's most brutal and dramatic exterminations came half a decade before the sins of the Holocaust. The SA was Hitler's army of thugs, but the head of the SA, Ernst Roehm, was threatening Hitler's rule. On June 29th 1934, Hitler ordered the SA leadership to appear for a meeting at the Hotel Hanselbauer. Without warning, the SS burst in, beginning 48 hours of bloodshed in which 1000 of the leading SA, including Roehm, were rounded up and slaughtered. This murderous deed became an ominous warning of what was to come. It is the single most significant episode in Hitler's rise to absolute power, and the set the stage for World War and the Holocaust.
