    June 17-23

    Join us for a day-by-day look at the last days of WWII. In this episode, 4-million residents turn out to cheer Eisenhower as he makes a triumphal 35-mile motorcade around New York City. In the Philippines, Appari, the last port held by the Japanese, falls to US forces, who now make contact with Filipino guerrillas. After three months of some of the bitterest fighting of the entire war, the Japanese finally cease trying to defend Okinawa against US forces. At dawn the Japanese commander, Lt. General Mitsuru Ushijima emerges from his bunker in a cave and commits ritual suicide in front of his shocked and demoralized staff officers. Victory at Okinawa places US forces just 400 miles from mainland Japan. Lt. General Simon B. Buckner, commander-in-chief of the US 10th Army, is killed by shrapnel as he visits frontline troops.

    Lombards

    Explore the primal pagan rites of the Lombard's, as they fight for land and for a barbarian bride. We travel with the brutal Lombard leader, Alboin, as he breaks through the Roman defenses in Italy, and forces his captured wife to drink from her murdered father's skull. The skilled Lombard king Liutprand will face both Roman and Frankish attacks, as he vies for supremacy on the crowded peninsula. He will create laws, linking bloody barbarian rites with ancient Roman justice and establishing a new culture in the former center of the fallen Roman Empire that will last for centuries.

    11 - Battle of Britain

    During the summer of 1940, the world held its breath and watched, as the British RAF and German Luftwaffe were locked in a battle to the death. It will last 114 days, take down almost 3000 aircraft, kill or wound 3800 aircrew and lead to the death of over 30,000 civilians. The German Nazi war machine had conquered all in its path, only Britain stood in its way to total European domination. Both British and German aerial reconnaissance photographs taken at the time have now been layered over a three dimensional contour map to create a CGI model of the battle. We use cutting edge technology, unique archive film, re-enactments and extraordinary interviews with the men who were there to tell the story of this historic battle.

    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.

    Franks

    We experience the birth of a barbarian empire in the Franks, as Merovius, a legendary leader said to be half-man, half-monster descends upon Gaul, setting the stage for his sons' conquest over both Roman and Visigoth armies. His grandson, Clovis, will relinquish his fierce pagan ways only when it seems that the Christian god grants him greater victory in battle. It is Clovis who leads his people to conquest over France, and builds the bridge between barbarian and statesman that the future king, Charlemagne finally embodies.
