    Shadow Warriors.

    Afghanistan, 1981. The Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in 1979, threatening to expand its huge hold of territory and edge closer to the rich oilfields of the Middle East. President Reagan decided to send CIA officers in to train Afghan rebels to fight against the Soviets. But he didn't want to tip America's hand, so he sent in a small team of undercover officers from the CIA's Islamabad station in Pakistan. Working in dark alleys and traveling on Pakistani military helicopters, Milt Bearden and his team of CIA officers gradually built a network to funnel arms and cash into Afghanistan and train the rebels to fight. Dodging bullets and risking their lives, the CIA officers became secret warriors fighting America's last battle of the Cold War.

    True Warriors: Urgent Fury.

    October 25, 1983, Operation Urgent Fury. The Navy's newest, top-secret weapon against terrorism, SEAL Team Six, gets its first "hot" operation--a danger-fraught mission to restore democracy to Grenada, a tiny Caribbean country hijacked by Cuban communists. Told they will face only light resistance, SEAL Team Six's job is to rescue the trapped Grenadian Governor. But they fast-rope into a hornet's nest of small arms fire and anti-aircraft artillery. Set up to fail, SEAL Team Six simply refused!

    True Warriors: Death from Above.

    Behind Taliban lines in the foreign and notoriously dangerous terrain of Afghanistan, three Air Force commandos go hunting for terrorists in October 2002. Flaunting the notion of capture, Andy Kubik, Calvin Markham, and Bart Decker scout potential Taliban targets on foot or by horse, provide F-16s with real-time intelligence, paint each target with a laser pointer, and watch as precision bombs obliterate Taliban strongholds. This is the story of these little-known super soldiers.

    April 22-28.

    In our series that dissects the last days of World War Two on a weekly basis, we witness Berlin reduced to rubble, setting the stage for the Red Army's entry into the beleaguered city. News reaches Hitler that some of his key advisors are now negotiating "surrender" deals with the enemy and, with the brutal execution of his cohort Benito Mussolini, he is forced to face reality...and the demise of the Third Reich. Allies from the East and West meet for the fist time in the West on the Elbe River. Just three days before the liberation of the Dachau concentration camp near Munich, SS soldiers force about 7,000 prisoners on a death march. In the Pacific, action on Okinawa comes to a boil as American forces inch closer to penetrating the barrier that sits between them and the enemy's main base--the Shuri region.

    Heavy Metal: PT Boat.

    Pound for pound, the Patrol Torpedo (PT) boats were WWII's most heavily armed fighting boats. Screwed and glued together on a hull made of wood, these 50 tons of fast fighting fury were hated by the Japanese who nicknamed them "The Devil Boats of the Night". With their three powerful marine engines and speedboat designs, they took on the enemy at close quarters with greater frequency than any other type of surface craft--from firefights with coastal barges to protecting the invasion fleet at D-Day. And they attacked the enemy from the freezing seas of the Aleutian Islands to the treacherous waters of the South Pacific. Using unique archive film, reenactments, and extraordinary interviews, here is the story of how this wooden wonder struggled for early recognition, but through the brilliance of its design, daring of its missions, and courage and sacrifice of its crews would play a major part in WWII.

    Secrets of the Desert War.

    In 1940, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini declared war on Britain and her allies and opened a new front in North Africa--if he could push the British out of Egypt, he could control the Suez Canal. And when Germany's Erwin Rommel and his Afrika Corps joined the fray, the stakes soared. The British could only spare a small force and used deception, camouflage, and sheer brilliance to win in North Africa, aided by virtuoso magician Jasper Maskelyne. Find out how he made the Suez Canal "disappear".

    Hitler's Supercity.

    Hitler caused more death and destruction than anyone else in history. But he also planned to build on a massive scale and place a new Germany on a par with ancient Greece and Rome. Our investigators piece together a picture of how Hitler wanted Germany to look from the ruins of what was built and from plans of his architect Albert Speer. In Nuremberg, we recreate the Zeppelin Tribune: where 60,000 people could overlook a parade ground. We reveal the real purpose of the stadium Speer planned to hold the Olympic Games--with seating for 405,000 people. And we rebuild, with computer-generated images based on Speer's plans, the monuments Hitler planned for himself: the Triumphal Arch--twice the height, and four times the width of Paris's Arc de Triomphe--and the People's Hall--a structure so big the Eiffel Tower could fit inside it. Monstrous, intimidating, built on slave labor--this is the Lost World we'd now inhabit if WWII had gone differently.

    High Hitler.

    Adolf Hitler dreamt of creating a master race, but achieved a Holocaust--the murder of millions of Jews and those deemed physical or mental defects. But the F hrer, an appalling hypochondriac, abused laxatives and suffered from stomach cramps and embarrassing flatulence. And that was just the start! When he committed suicide in 1945, the great dictator was frail with tremors and a shuffling walk--a feeble condition concealed from the world. We explore the relationship between Hitler and his personal physician, Dr. Theodore Morell. How did amphetamine abuse, Parkinson's Disease, and tertiary syphilis impact on his state of mind?

    CIA and the Nazis.

    Six months after Allied Forces liberated German concentration camps, a military tribunal formed at Nuremberg to prosecute Nazi war criminals. Some of the most dangerous were brought to justice--but not all. Over 4,000 former Nazis went to work for the US government, without the public's knowledge, to help fight the Soviet Union. Reinhard Gehlen, an intelligence officer for Hitler's General Staff, was tapped to head the US intelligence program in West Germany to spy on the Russians. At the same time, former Nazi scientists and engineers were welcomed onto American soil. In 1998, a bill was finally signed into law that mandated declassification of documents concerning recruitment of former Nazis. We dig into the records to see if the ends justified the means and ask how far the US should go to partner with a former enemy to fight another.

    April 15-21.

    The Red Army's assault on Berlin begins. Meanwhile, Hitler, sealed away in his bunker, marks his 56th birthday. US General Alexander Patch's 7th Army captures the city of Nuremberg in southern Germany. In the East, the Soviet Government and the Provisional Communist Government of Poland conclude a treaty of mutual assistance. In the Pacific, fierce fighting continues on Okinawa. American soldiers are finding the Japanese to be a savvy and tenacious enemy. Ernie Pyle, one of World War Two's most distinguished and revered correspondents, is fatally wounded on Okinawa. US forces complete the capture of the islands in Manila Bay. Join us for a week-by-week detailed look at the last days of World War Two.

    The Sun Never Sets

    As WWII begins, England stands alone, paying the price of treaty limitations that allowed Germany and Japan to secretly build more powerful ships. Though England can't spare ships from the Atlantic to pursue the Japanese, after VE Day, her carriers prove decisive elements in the Pacific. After WWII, the Empire and the Royal Navy decline as a world force. But the 1982 Falklands War revives the Navy, and today, its nuclear subs and jump-jet carriers attest to its centuries-old history and tradition.

    Stalin's Spy Ring.

    A steady drip of crucial information made its way out of Germany and over to Russia during the course of WWII. It came from the Red Orchestra--a group of people from nations worldwide, united by their faith in Communism. The information the spy ring provided was so startlingly accurate that today many people believe there must have been a Communist spy in the highest echelons of Nazi government. We follow the stories of Red Orchestra members and attempt to track their superspy.
