We also look at miracle materials, such as carbon-fiber technology, and radar--now being used to help locate people trapped in the rubble of collapsed buildings.

    Battleground.

    World War Two was truly a global conflict. Allied soldiers fought in all theaters of war, exposing them to an extraordinary diversity of terrain and climate--from the Arctic Circle to desert sands and fetid jungles. An infantryman was engaged in combat for an hour each day on average, but he fought the environment around the clock. The war comes alive through a moving tapestry of letters, diaries, and color film and photographs unearthed from archives and personal collections. Peter Coyote narrates.

    August 5-August 11

    In Japan, 325 planes from the US 5th and 7th Air Forces, based on Okinawa, raid Tarumizi in the south. Fat Boy, the world's first atom bomb, is dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima from a specially modified B-29, named the Enola Gay after the mother of the pilot, Colonel Paul Tibbets. Around 80,000 people died in the blast that destroyed 60% of the city. Many more are severely injured; others will die later from radiation sickness. Later this week, a second atom bomb--Fat Man--is dropped on Japan; this time over the city of Nagasaki, a major ship-building port. The US 1st Army begins arriving on Luzon to prepare for the forthcoming invasion of Japan. In Moscow, the Soviet government declares war on Japan for that country's refusal to respond to the surrender demands of the "Big Three" at the recent Potsdam Conference.

    01 - Attack on Europe

    This five-part series investigates Hitler's Wehrmacht, the largest and most deadly military army in the history of Germany. For nearly six years, 18 million men served in its ranks, pledging absolute loyalty to Hitler and reigning terror throughout Europe. When the Wehrmacht attacked Poland on the 1st of September, 1939, the entire continent was shocked by the military clout of an army that only a few years back had consisted of no more than 100,000 troops with neither tanks nor airplanes at their disposal. For the first time, ground combat received massive air support, while armored units formed a "spearhead."

    Disaster of Napoleon's Fleet.

    The Battle of the Nile--August 1, 1798. A mighty French fleet under the command of Napoleon Bonaparte is anchored in Aboukir Bay, Egypt. Just hours before sunset, an outnumbered British fleet, commanded by the famous Admiral Horatio Nelson, discovers the French and battle ensues. In the dark of night, the French flagship, L'Orient, one of the most powerful warships in the world, suddenly explodes. She sinks quickly, taking an estimated $20 million in gold and silver to the bottom. How did the mighty battleship sink so quickly that night? And what happened to the lost fortune in gold and silver? Veteran divers John Chatterton and Richie Kohler plunge into Aboukir Bay--and discover that history's telling of the L'Orient's demise is wrong. Did Admiral Nelson'spin the events of that day?

    Warrior Empire: The Mughals.

    From 1526 to 1858, the Mughals, a dynasty of nomadic Asian rulers, created a massive and powerful empire covering much of India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, passing along an appetite for territory expansion and brutality. But they were also technological innovators and builders of some of the most enduring architecture in South Asia. Through their conquests and achievements, we learn about their military innovations like composite bows, matchlock guns, rocketry, chain mail, and cannons. We explore their feats of archery on horseback and use of elephants as fearsome weapons. And we examine their culture and enduring architecture, including palaces, forts, water systems, gardens, and the Taj Mahal--a tomb that took 22 years to build in honor of the most beloved of the sultan's wives. Join us for a sweeping history of the military ambition, innovative weapons and battle strategies, material excess, architectural wonders, and cultural flowering that shaped modern India.

    Wolfpack: U-Boats of WWII.

    They were Hitler's most effective and feared weapon--submarines that attacked in coordinated groups, like wolves. These stealthy predators sank thousands of Allied merchant ships, choking Britain in an economic stranglehold and devastating US coastal shipping. Top historians and US and German veterans provide insight into the strategies, tactics, and weapons used in the Battle of the Atlantic. We also hear from eyewitnesses to the 1942 torpedoing of the SS Gulf America off the coast of Florida.
