70 years have passed since the last land battle of World War II left 120,000 Okinawan civilians dead, along with a nearly equal number of Japanese and American soldiers. Newly uncovered archives and data on casualties are analyzed to create a vivid timeline and map of the devastating 12-week long battle. Accounts of survivors and battlefield historians depict a battle of attrition that became more indiscriminate as the weeks passed. A beautiful, subtropical island was transformed into burnt wasteland, as the clashing armies fought a ferocious battle that fused warriors and civilians in death.

The Normandy Landings that took place on D-Day involved by far the largest invasion fleet ever known. The scale of the undertaking was simply awesome. What followed them was some of the most cunning and ferocious fighting of the war, at times as savage as anything seen on the Eastern Front. As casualties mounted, so too did the tensions between the principal commanders on both sides.

Genre: Documentary

Major General Julian Thompson, commander of land forces during the Falklands war, brings his years of soldiering experience to bear on this extraordinary battle. The battle of Verdun was one of the longest and one of the bloodiest engagements of World War I. Two million men were involved in the struggle.
It began on February 21st 1916, when the Germans, commanded by Crown Prince Frederick William, launched a massive offensive against Verdun, an awkward salient in the French line.The outlying forts of Douaumont and Hardaumont soon fell, but the French rallied under General Pétain and resistance stiffened.
A British offensive on the Somme relieved the pressure on Verdun in July, 1916, and by December the French had recovered most of the ground lost. The intention of the Germans had been a battle of attrition in which they hoped to bleed the French army white. In the end, they sustained almost as many casualties as the French; an estimated 328,000 to the French 348,000.

The Battlefield Detectives documentary series draws on the expertise of scientists from a host of fields to filter the events that occurred in famous historical battles through a contemporary lens. This particular episode travels back in time to rural New Jersey on the scorching day of June 28, 1778 - to revisit a turning point in the Revolutionary War between Great Britain and the 13 colonies that historians christened The Battle of Monmouth. Though the Brits foolishly assumed that the colonial soldiers were ill-equipped to face off with them on that fateful day, General George Washington was in charge - and promptly pinned his British enemies to the ground, inflicted horrific casualties, and forced the English to flee without burying their dead. In this program, a group of meteorologists, physiologists, historials and others travel to a closed laboratory environment and study how such elements as blistering heat, heavy wool uniforms and rigorous training impacted the soldiers at Monmouth.
