Other featured artillery includes Civil War cannons and the Pack 75 Howitzer, a World War II cannon used in the Battle of the Bulge.

    Sniper: Bulletproof

    A sniper has one chance, one breath, to rise to the occasion and save the day -- if he misses, there may never be another opportunity. We'll deconstruct and analyze the little known stories of snipers and their actions. The people who planned the takedowns or pulled the trigger share their techniques and bring to light the many factors that have to be considered in each mission -- terrain, wind speed, temperature, elevation changes -- as well as the high tech gear each sniper carries on their classified missions to complete the job.

    15 - Special Duty Trucks/Ballistic Missile Defense/Weather

    Hunter Ellis drives the big, bad military trucks that move convoys and navigate through muck, mire, and sand ever since they replaced mules--and the latest and greatest civilian trucks. Next, he investigates the importance of fielding a defense system capable of engaging incoming targets; and sees how amateur rocketeers are approaching supersonic speeds. Then, he looks at how many of the tools used in weather prediction originated in the military, helping to make weather-watching a national pastime!

    Samurai and the Swastika.

    From 1939-1945, Germany and Japan forged a strategic alliance that included logistical support from both sides and a range of technical cooperation, as well as jointly supporting major anti-British uprisings in India. In perhaps the boldest scheme, they conspired to destroy the Panama Canal. We'll review their wartime union.

    X Day--The Invasion of Japan.

    By spring of 1942, Japan controlled the western Pacific, the Philippines, and large parts of Indochina. America and her allies knew that final victory could only be achieved by unconditional surrender and that would involve occupation of the Japanese homeland. This is the story Operation Downfall, the plan to invade and occupy Japan that would dwarf the D-Day landings in Europe. According to the plan, on X-Day--November 1, `45--General MacArthur would lead an invasion force onto the beaches of Kyushu, the southern most of the Japanese Islands. Y-Day would follow six months later when the largest beach landing in military history would take Tokyo. Politicians and military strategists knew that Japanese resistance would be ferocious. Plans for the invasion continued throughout `45 until President Truman made the decision to drop the atom bomb. We trace the invasion plans from Pearl Harbor to Hiroshima and analyze why Truman chose the bomb over Operation Downfall.
