    Jungle Ambush.

    During the Vietnam War, a daring group of Army Green Berets known as SOG launches highly classified missions into neighboring countries Laos and Cambodia, in an attempt to foil the cross-border activities of the North Vietnamese Army. The "Secret War" as it is known, is fought by SOGs unique blend of elite, highly trained American and indigenous troops who, while grossly outnumbered, brazenly venture into combat. On October 5th, 1968, SOG Spike Team Alabama is deployed into a high threat area of Laos on a reconnaissance mission to silently track a regiment of enemy troops. However, within the first minutes of their operation, Alabama's worst nightmare becomes a reality when they realize they've fallen into a horrible trap set by the North Vietnamese Army. Outnumbered a thousand to one, Spike Team Alabama will fight a staggering battle for their lives, and earn their place amongst the greatest in the history of American military.

    July 29-August 4

    Allied naval and air forces target Japanese aircraft factories at Hamamutsu and southern Honshu. In China, mines dropped from Allied planes halt Japanese shipping on the Yangtze River. In Burma, Japanese resistance crumbles as the Allies triumph in the Battle of the Breakthrough. A Japanese submarine sinks the US heavy cruiser Indianapolis in the Philippines. In Germany, the Potsdam Conference draws to a halt. The "Big Three"--the US, Britain, and Soviet Union--agree to limit German industrial growth and transfer certain territories in the country's east to Poland and the Soviet Union. The German industrial war machine is to be broken up and reparations paid to the Allies. Finally, Stalin agrees that the Soviet Union will join in the war against Japan on a date yet to be fixed. We also take a look at the US Douglas A-26 Invader Medium Bomber, and feature the life of Clement Attlee, who took over from Winston Churchill as British prime minister in July 1945.

    Edwards Air Force Base.

    Examine the colorful history of the premier flight test center, and America's most important aviation facility for more than 60 years, Edwards Air Force Base in California. Every single aircraft to enter the Air Force's inventory has been put through its paces at Edwards, along with many Navy and Army aircraft as well. With unprecedented access to several forgotten and abandoned facilities on the base, we are guided by Richard Hallion, former chief historian for the US Air Force. Today, Edwards continues to push the envelope. Among the many cutting-edge projects currently being tested is the Airborne Laser, designed to focus a basketball-sized spot of intense heat that could destroy a ballistic missile.

    The White Tigers.

    North Korea, 1951: They were unknown soldiers fighting unknown battles in a forgotten war. Their covert missions annihilated communist forces. For the first time, the details of this top secret army code named "8240" have been declassified. Four Army Rangers and 20 South Koreans accept a classified mission to destroy rail lines far behind enemy lines. At the very start, the mission goes bad. Brutally cold temperatures and poor planning force them to scrap the mission but not without casualties and a daring helicopter rescue under heavy fire. There are also victories by battalions called The White Tigers known for their ferocious fighting. Their intrepid raid demolished a top Communist fortress. History never fully honored the bravery of these soldiers who paved the way for US special forces today...that is until now.

    July 22-28

    In Burma, 5,000 Japanese troops, trapped in the Pegu Hills, attempt to make a break east towards the Sittang River; but only a small number survives. In the Pacific, the biggest Allied naval re-supply operation thus far begins. On Mindanao in the Philippines, all organized Japanese resistance in the Sarangani Bay area ends and US forces start mopping-up operations. At the Potsdam Conference, US President Truman announces that the atom bomb will be used against the Japanese as soon after August 3 as is possible. In New York, a US B-25 bomber is lost in fog over the city and flies into the Empire State Building--killing 13 people die and injuring 26. And in this episode, we highlight the long career of Winston Churchill, who became Prime Minister of Great Britain on May 10, 1940-- the same day that Germany attacked France and the Low Countries.

    Over the Jungles, Over the Sands

    By the end of the Vietnam War, Air Force losses were huge and victory denied, though many new weapons, including the first smart bombs, were developed. But then Desert Storm unleashes and vindicates high-tech airpower, and stealth technology comes of age. Air war over the Balkans sharpens precision tools, and the shape of the 21st-century Air Force that will dominate the second Gulf War emerges. After a century of courage and innovation, no power on earth can challenge the U.S. Air Force.

    In 1943, when the HMS Dasher sank off the coast of Scotland, nearly 500 sailors died. Later that year, during the Allies' Operation Mincemeat, a corpse was floated off the coast of Spain carrying battle plans in a briefcase chained to his wrist. But the corpse was a plant, the plans were faked, and the Germans were totally fooled. What was the true identity of the body, and was it linked to the mysterious sinking of the HMS Dasher?

    A cogent look at the massacre of US paratroopers and French civilians on D-Day. When members of the 507th PIR were dropped 20 miles from their objective, the village of Graignes voted to help them. Six days of fighting ensued--followed by severe Nazi retaliation. The heroic collaboration of paratroopers and French civilians delayed the SS and aided one of D-Day's most crucial victories. 40 years later, 507th veterans return to France to honor 11 citizens with the Distinguished Civilian Service Award.

    Luftwaffe's Deadliest Mission

    In the face of the wholesale destruction of their homeland, young Germans were motivated to destroy American bombers by any means necessary. On April 7, 1945 a volunteer unit called the Sonderkommando ELBE takes to the sky with one goal in mind--use their own aircraft as battering rams to destroy American bombers. Rare interviews with the German pilots who mounted these attacks will offer an unprecedented look into the mindset of these ram-pilots.

    Rise of the Fourth Reich

    The officers of the SS, Hitler's feared paramilitary unit, were the most notorious war criminals of WWII. Some were brought to justice after the war, but many were able to escape from Germany. A massive secret organization known as Odessa was reportedly formed to help them flee and rebuild a new Reich that would again rise to power. MysteryQuest will investigate by following the path of feared Nazis from Germany, to Austria, and Italy. The team will also travel to Paraguay where many of the Nazis reportedly hid while plotting their new rise.
