Season 2, Episode 8
They killed 3,000 U.S. citizens on a single day...on U.S. Soil. Al-Qaeda and Taliban extremists...still on the loose...and still actively planning death and destruction. For five years, heroic U.S. Servicemen and their allies have hunted these murderers. Special Forces Captain Jason Amerine links up with pre-Taliban-era statesman Hamid Karzi and orchestrates a bombing campaign that forces the Taliban to surrender Kandahar and escape into the hills. 10th Mountain Division and 101st Airborne Division soldiers kill or capture hundreds of Al-Qaeda fighters and Taliban hold-outs in Operation Anaconda. And a U.S. Marine task force roots out and takes down dozens more terrorists in the birthplace of the Taliban -- the Oruzgan Province in south-central Afghanistan. The on-going search for enemy combatants in the mountains of Afghanistan has brought both battlefield successes...and heartbreaking tragedies...like the death of pro football-star-turned-soldier, Pat Tillman. This is the story of the gun battles from that search...harrowing, deadly shootouts...from the Hunt for Afghanistan's Most Wanted.

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.

Season 2, Episode 6
It's the most desperate shootout of the Vietnam War. During the early morning hours of January 31, 1968, North Vietnamese communist troops launch a surprise attack on dozens of towns and villages across South Vietnam. They hope the bold offensive will spur a nation-wide uprising in the south and push U.S. forces from Vietnam. U.S. troops beat back the assault and hundreds of the communist fighters are killed. From remote jungle crossroads to the streets of Saigon, average Americans, under attack, display incredible courage and make sacrifices to save their buddies. The impact will be felt in the consciousness of the American public itself. We use unique visual graphics and interviews with survivors to complete the story.

December 8th, 1942. With the American fleet still smoldering in Pearl Harbor, the Japanese unleash their war machine on the Philippines. Thousands of American GIs and their Filipino allies beat a fighting retreat onto the jungle-infested Bataan Peninsula with the Imperial Army in hot pursuit. Surrounded, and cut off from reinforcements, the American-led force finally surrenders, only to be subjected to the horrors of the Bataan Death March. Many of the survivors of the march are imprisoned at the Cabanatuan death camp. Fast forward. January 30th, 1945. After three hellish years, the American military makes a triumphant return to the shores of the Philippines. The elite Army Rangers are sent on a secret mission to liberate 500 Allied prisoners still languishing behind the barbed wire of Cabanatuan. Captain Bob Prince and Lt. Robert Andersen were there, and they take us shot-by-shot through one of the most daring lightning raids in history.
