GERMANY'S LAST ACE: GUNTHER RALL

When he failed to capture Moscow or secure a Russian surrender, Germany faced a scenario many had feared—a two-front war.  In this riveting documentary, narrator Gary Sinise tells the story of three men who played decisive roles in the aerial battles over Germany: Lt. Col. Hubert Zemke, Lt. Robert Rankin, and Luftwaffe squadron commander Günther Rall.

THE ENOLA GAY

Theodore "Dutch" Van Kirk, NAVIGATOR and crew member of the B-29 Superfortress that delivered the atomic bomb to Hiroshima, gives an original first-person account of the airplane, crew and target selection, as well as the training for the historic mission. Van Kirk offers his first-person account of the historic mission, flown on August 6, 1945.

FLYING TIGERS

Flying Tiger Triple Ace David Lee “Tex” Hill was born on the Korean Peninsula in 1915, just three years after the last Chinese dynasty had fallen and China’s first republic had been established. In a series of exclusive interviews, Tex recalls how the Chinese/Japanese war that began in 1937 gave rise to the American Volunteer Group – the legendary Flying Tigers - and the events that put his life on an intersecting course with those of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek and the legendary Claire Chennault.
