Having thoroughly explored the America of the late 19th and early 20th centuries with the Emmy-winning The Men Who Built America, History is turning its docuseries lens to the world at large with new three-night event series The World Wars, set to premiere on Memorial Day (Monday, May 26 at 9/8c).
The six hours will unfold mostly chronologically over the course of both World Wars, showing how major WWII players like Josef Stalin, Adolf Hitler, George Patton, and Winston Churchill were forged in the crucible of WWI. Unlike other war docs, executive producer Russ McCarroll says, "this is a very character-driven approach."

Caught red-handed! John McCain was seen playing poker during a Senate Committee on Foreign Relations hearing about a possible U.S. military strike on Syria.
On Tuesday, Washington Post photographer Melina Mara said McCain was "passing the time by playing poker on his iPhone during the hearing." They then posted the photo evidence.
Fall TV: Hot scoop!
So what did McCain have to say for himself?
President Barack Obama, Jay Leno
President Barack Obama sat down with Jay Leno on Tuesday night where the two chatted about his recent lunch with Hillary Clinton, his "bromance" with Senator John McCain, the Trayvon Martin case and more.
After talking politics and policy, Leno got right to business asking about his recent meeting with possible future presidential candidate Clinton. "Who invited who to lunch?" Leno asked. "I invited her... And we had a great time," Obama said. "She had that post-administration glow. You know, when folks leave the White House, like two weeks later they look great." Joking about Clinton taking over, Leno added, "Did you notice her measuring the drapes or anything like that?" "Keep in mind she's been there before," Obama said. "She doesn't have to measure them."
Conan O'Brien spoke at the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday, but most of his barbs were directed at the media and television networks, rather than at President Barack Obama.
The dinner also included a sketch courtesy of House of Cards star Kevin Spacey, who parodied his Netflix series with a spoof dubbed "House of Nerds," which included appearances by John McCain and several White House journalists. Check it out below:

President Barack Obama was sworn in for a second term as 44th President of the United States Monday, in a star-studded ceremony that looked toward the country's future as much as it paid tribute to long-established ceremonies.
Following in the footsteps of Joe Biden and John McCain, Newt Gingrich is the latest politician to appear on NBC's Parks and Recreation.
The Indy Star reports that the former speaker of the House happened upon production of Parks and Rec at St. Elmo Steak House in Indianapolis on Monday when he tried to get lunch.
As the election draws closer, more and more celebrities are announcing their presidential endorsements. The latest supporter to stump for Mitt Romney: "Bat Out of Hell" singer Meat Loaf.
The singer sang his endorsement with a bizarre (to say the least) rendition of "America, the Beautiful" at a fundraising event Thursday evening.
