    Genghis Khan.

    Genghis Khan conquered half the world and his barbarism influenced generation after generation. A brilliant and charismatic leader and military strategist, he united the nomadic Mongol tribes and left behind sons and grandsons to maintain the dynasty long after his death. And he left behind one of history's great mysteries--what happened to all the booty taken from conquered cities? Nothing has ever been found--not a goblet, coin, or statue, though gold, silver, and jewels flowed back to Mongolia like shining rivers. Legend suggests it was buried with the Great Khan and the gravedigger-soldiers killed to keep the gravesite secret. Our investigation follows clues uncovered by a Chicago attorney and passed on to an expeditionary team. There's no treasure map, but the path these scholars take provides insight into the Asian warlord and the continuing mystery of his burial place.

    Civil War Terror

    This is the largely untold story of a war waged by secret agents and spies on both sides of the Mason Dixon Line. These are tales of hidden conspiracies of terror that specifically targeted the civilian populations. Engineers of chemical weapons, new-fangled explosives and biological warfare competed to topple their enemy. With insight from Civil War authorities, we debunk the long-held image of a romantic and gentlemanly war. To revisit the past, we incorporate written sources, archival photographs and newspaper headlines. Our reenactments bring to life key moments in our historical characters' lives and in each of the horrific terrorist plots.

    Child Warriors

    Children as young as seven years old have become hardened combat soldiers and there are currently 300,000 children under the age of eighteen fighting in three-fourths of the world's conflicts. Never before in history have children been used on such a large scale. Some are drugged to stay and fight; others simply have nowhere to go and know nothing else. Technology has reduced the need for expert combat skills, and the proliferation of arms in conflict areas has made the child a serious threat on the battlefield. This special chronicles the incredible personal story of Ishmael Beah, a former child soldier in Sierra Leone's civil war, and the author of the best selling book A Long Way Gone - Memoirs of a Boy Soldier. Also profiled is Yasmin Ardila, a girl child soldier from Colombia, who at the age of sixteen lost her leg when she stepped on a landmine, while fighting for a rebel group.

    17 - Balloons/Army Engineers/Command Centers

    Many think manned flight began with the Wright Brothers, but it really began 200 years earlier. As early as 1783, balloons were used in everything from espionage to bombing. Host Hunter Ellis takes a ride on a cluster balloon and looks at the revival of the hot air balloon for civilian use. Next, we see how the Army Corps of Engineers has paved the way from Bunker Hill to Iraqi Freedom. And we compare military command centers to their civilian counterparts used for transportation and energy systems.

    Washington the Warrior.

    The George Washington we all know is larger than life, an icon of mythic proportions. But before becoming "Father" of his country, he was a soldier. This unique, in-depth portrait of the Washington we don't always think about begins in 1753, when the 21-year-old obtained an officer's commission in the Virginia militia. While serving alongside British regulars, did brash and sometimes reckless decisions help ignite the French and Indian War? Washington retired from the militia in 1758, but continued to hone his leadership skills. Managing his vast Mount Vernon estate required many of the same talents as commanding soldiers in the field. When America declared independence, Washington was the consensus choice to lead the Continental Army. This is the epic story of Washington's journey to greatness--propelled by intense, often painful, transformation. The man who emerged was a warrior of the purest sort...a man who preferred liberty to power and justice to glory.

    First Invasion: The War of 1812

    Just 30 years after the closing days of the American Revolution, an immature United States faced annihilation by its parent! Join us for an epic 2-hour look at the War of 1812, when the mighty British Empire once again waged war against the fledgling US. This largely forgotten war witnessed Washington in flames, inspired the national anthem, allowed the Founding Fathers to step aside for a new generation of common men and women with uncommon courage, and saw America emerge as a world power.
