Summary
  • Flying the secret sky: In 1940, Nazi air strikes had Britain on its knees. The RAF was desperate for planes and their supply of U.S. aircraft, sent on ship convoys, had been sunk in the icy Atlantic by relentless German U-boats. In response, the U.S. launched a secret operation to fly the planes across the unforgiving ocean to England
  • On a wind and a prayer: Takes an in-depth look at the Japanese Fugo Balloon Bomb offensive and highlights its place in WWII history
  • Red, white, black & blue: Bill Jones and Andy Petrus fought 3,000 Japanese in a secret Alaskan invasion during World War II. Now 60 years later, these two forgotten heroes embark on a journey back to the remote Aleutian island of Attu, where they relive the brutal 19-day battle
