    The Big Red One

    The First Infantry Division, a.k.a. Big Red One, is the oldest and best division in the U.S. Army. These warriors fought more campaigns than any other U.S. division in World War Two. Elements of the division experienced action during the War of 1812, the Mexican War, and the Civil War and fired the first American shots in World War I. Decorated veterans of World War II will take the viewer back to the tense battlefields of El Guettar, North Africa, Troina, Sicily, Normandy (Omaha beach) France and their final shootout at the Falkenau concentration camp in Czechoslovakia.

    Warrior Queen Boudica.

    Wife, mother, queen...and leader of one of the most violent rebellions against Roman domination in British history. This we know about Boudica, Queen of the Iceni. Her story and her tribe's have been recorded by Roman historians, pondered by scholars, and examined by archaeologists who continue to dig for clues about this warrior whose army set fear in the hearts of Romans. When King Prasutagus died, the Iceni tribe, which once lived in peace with Rome, were brutally set upon by Romans--they beat Queen Boudica and raped her daughters. Seething with revenge, Boudica's forces attacked Roman settlements including London, a thriving Roman merchant center, which was destroyed. Here, we uncover the remarkable story of Boudica, who led her tribe in a revolt never seen before or since in British history. Her struggle--to free Briton's tribes from Roman domination; at stake--the freedom and independence of all Briton's tribes and their unique Celtic culture.

    July 1-7.

    In the Great Sundra Islands, 33,000 Australian troops land at Balikpapan, while three escort carriers provide naval support. The Allies now control one of the richest oil-producing areas in Asia. In Berlin, the first US occupation troops arrive as Allied forces hold a victory parade. Meanwhile, rumors circulate that Hitler is still alive. In Manila, US General Douglas MacArthur declares the Philippines free from Japanese occupation. In Britain, Prime Minister Winston Churchill loses the General Election to the Labour Party led by Clement Atlee. But the results are not known for another three weeks. We also take a look at the US Curtis P-40 Kittyhawk and its important combat role under General Chennault against the Japanese in China. By the summer of 1945, USAF Major-General Claire Chennault--known as "Old Leather Face"--was in command of a combined wing of the Chinese and US air forces.

    Blood & Guts

    General George S. Patton and the US Army embark on the road to Germany by invading North Africa on November 8th, 1942. The program begins with a preview of the first showdown between US and German forces at Kasserine Pass in February, 1943. Then, back at the initial landings in November, 1942, Pro-Nazi French forces put up surprisingly strong resistance on land, at sea, and in the air against Patton's invasion forces. After three days of intense fighting, a cease-fire is declared, and Patton triumphantly enters the port city of Casablanca. But bigger battles with the German Army loom on the horizon. Focusing on the campaigns of Gen. George S. Patton Jr., this new series combines exciting computer animations of the battles and equipment with archival footage and commentary from historians and veterans, to take us right back into the middle of the action.

    June 24-30

    In Moscow, during a victory parade, more than 200 captured Nazi banners are ceremonially dragged across a rain-soaked Red Square and thrown to the ground in front of Lenin's tomb to the rumble of hundreds of drums. British bombers destroy the bridge over the River Kwai that the Japanese, using extreme cruelty, had forced weak and suffering Allied POWs to build. A Chinese envoy is the first of 50 delegates to sign the charter of the newly-formed United Nations. And as the bitter campaign in the Philippines drags on, President Truman approves a plan to invade mainland Japan. Five-million troops, mainly American, will take part.

    Iwo Jima: Fight to the Death.

Just before the photo was snapped, there was a bloody shootout on the mountain crest. This is just one of the true stories told by veterans of one of the Pacific's bloodiest battlefields, where 70,000 US Marines fought 21,000 entrenched Japanese over eight square miles of death. Follow the men of the 5th Pioneer Battalion as they fight off a savage, last-ditch suicide attack in the waning days of the battle.

    Gods of War

    Lying at the crossroads of the East and West, Turkey has a history marked by conquest and conflict. Empires clashed over this land and its trade routes, leaving behind a rich mythology of gods and men, and tales of epic battles that soaked Turkey's soil in blood. Host Don Wildman uncovers the truth behind the mysterious legends of the Trojan War, and reveals how a maniacal king plotted to overturn consecrated ground in order to build one of the Ancient World's Seven Wonders. It's the vengeance of the gods versus the might of mortal armies--and the remains are buried underground.
