    06 - Light Off-Road Vehicles/Battlefield ER/Drones

    When the Navy SEALs needed a better way to travel the desert, they asked Chenowth Racing to build a car that could stand up to the desert. Host Hunter Ellis shows off their DPV (Desert Patrol Vehicle) at the Baja 1000. Next, he sees how battlefield medicine provided lifesaving changes in emergency medicine--from cutting-edge triage to "smart" bandages, and how UAVs (Unmanned Air Vehicles) have moved from military to myriad uses, including law enforcement, Hollywood, and even archaeological digs!

    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.

    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.

    Ball Turret Gunners

    In war, certain missions demand the most and constitute much of the legends of bravery. Journey back to the Second World War when fearless airmen manned the B-17s' belly guns--glass bubbles that at any moment could become their coffin. The ball turret gunners called their work "flying the ball", others called it crazy!

    The Maginot Line.

    The Maginot Line, a defensive string of forts with enfilading firepower, was built by France between WWI and WWII. Conceived by Minister of War Andr Maginot, it was meant to forestall another German invasion until troops could arrive. But the French began to think of the line as a substitute for manpower. When Belgium declared neutrality and exposed France's flank, Germany was able to sidestep the line. We'll visit the "impregnable" line's forts, observation turrets, and underground railroads.

    B-29.

    In 1948, a B-29 Superfortress took off from California on a research mission carrying a strange piece of scientific equipment--the Suntracker. But when the plane crashed into Lake Mead, Nevada, the Suntracker was lost. And all records saying what it was or what the plane was studying were also lost. Now, archaeologists from the National Park Services' Submerged Resources Center explore the wrecked bomber, submerged under 200 feet of water, and learn that it was at the forefront of Cold War science.

    Soldiers for Hire.

    Once called mercenaries, highly trained killers have offered their deadly services for a price--from ancient Rome to the War on Terror. Today, they've marched from the back pages of Soldier of Fortune magazine to form vast corporations with the power of the most advanced militaries. The payday for these private soldiers has reached $100-billion annually! Unregulated by governing forces, they wage war for those who can afford it. Find out if they are the future of conflict resolution in our 2-hour special.

    The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors.

    This is the remarkable story of the tiny U.S. fleet that staged the greatest upset victory in the history of naval warfare. Facing sure destruction off the Philippines at the hands of a massive Japanese fleet that included the most powerful battleship ever built, the Yamato, seven overmatched U.S. destroyers and destroyer escorts (or "tin cans" in Navy speak) charged the Japanese head-on. In the Battle off Samar, a steel shattering two-hour daylight surface engagement, the last ever fought, the task unit known as "Taffy 3" saved General Douglas MacArthur's invasion force and, at a cost of five stout ships and 850 sailors, etched its name in U.S. Navy legend.
