     For five years, heroic U.S. Servicemen and their allies have hunted Al-Qaeda and Taliban extremists who caused the deaths of 3,000 Americans in a single day. Special Forces Captain Jason Amerine 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 and Taliban fighters. Dozens more are rooted out 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. This is the story of the gun battles from that search -- harrowing, deadly shootouts. Details

Before setting out for Baghdad, they're stopping at a terrorist training facility to arm, equip, build car bombs and IED's and learn the fine art of hostage taking. They're also oppressing and brutalizing peaceful local citizens. Now, a task force of 1,000 U.S. Marines has come to wipe out the jihadist nerve center. It's history in the making as 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines move in to exterminate the terrorists and smash their base of operations.

Battle of the Bulge Shootout!, Season 2 44:58 2006-11-10  $1.99  See Preview/Download
     It was Hitler's boldest move. The Axis of Evil creates an 85-mile "bulge" along the Western front that extends from the North Sea down to Switzerland. Hitler's mission is to drive a wedge between the Allied armies in the north and south, retake the seaport city of Antwerp and claim victory. The Americans not only fight the Germans but the weather -- minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit. In some places, the snow is knee deep. Foxholes become frozen tombs and frostbite takes 15,000 men off the line. After six weeks of hellish combat, the battle pulverizes Hitler's forces on the Western Front and aids the Allies in winning the war. Details

Just before the photo was snapped, there was a bloody shootout on the mountain crest. This is just one of the true stories told by veterans of one of the Pacific's bloodiest battlefields, where 70,000 US Marines fought 21,000 entrenched Japanese over eight square miles of death. Follow the men of the 5th Pioneer Battalion as they fight off a savage, last-ditch suicide attack in the waning days of the battle. Details
Battlecry Iraq: Ramadi Shootout!, Season 1 44:50 2005-12-13  $1.99  See Preview/Download
     "Today we are going to kill Americans." That was the warning to shopkeepers in Ramadi's marketplace on April 6, 2004. Insurgents meant what they said. They intended to harm any and all members of Echo Company -- part of the Second Battalion of the 4th Marine Regiment. Ramadi, a Sunni stronghold and former Saddam power base in the Anbar province, is one of the most dangerous places in Iraq. Resistance there is fierce. "The Magnificent Bastards" as the 2-4 is called, bore the brunt of hatred and rage as they were ambushed in a well-planned attack. We chronicle the 2-4's struggle for survival while under fire -- everywhere and all at once -- from an enemy that couldn't be seen. AK-47s, machine guns, and rocket-propelled grenades exploded all around. About 50 insurgents positioned themselves on the roofs of one-story buildings and in between market stalls. The next week-and-a-half would be bloody and deadly. Details
Iraq's Most Wanted Shootout!, Season 1 44:45 2005-12-13  $1.99  See Preview/Download
     They're cold-blooded killers, not particularly selective about their victims -- coalition troops, international journalists, Iraqi civilians -- just about anyone will do. These slaughterers want political power. In the south, militant cleric Muqtada al-Sadr unleashes his militia on US Marines policing Najaf. The two forces battle hand-to-hand in a 1,000-year-old cemetery. In central Iraq, a skilled insurgent mortar team tries to disrupt national elections by targeting polling places in and around Fallujah. Marine Recon squads quietly hunt them down and kill them one-by-one. In the northern city of Mosul, Uday and Qusay Hussein, sons of Saddam, help plan and fund insurgent training and operations. US Special Forces and 101st Airborne troops surround their hardened, reinforced hideout and decimate it. For Iraq's "Most Wanted", the message is clear: surrender and you might live; resist and you'll crumble in a storm of lead. Details

     If you thought the war in Afghanistan was over, think again. Young Americans continue to fight and die as they pursue Osama bin Laden, battle with al-Qaida, and destroy the last remnants of the Taliban regime. Fighting a tenacious enemy across searing deserts and frigid mountain peaks requires strong weaponry and sound tactics. These American veterans had both. Marine Gunnery Sergeant William Bodette shows us how he fought off three enemy ambushes in one month and lived to tell the tale. Three National Guardsmen -- all cops back in America's heartland -- diagram their rescue of two Special Forces snipers pinned down by al-Qaida gunmen. Sergeant Jason Thompson breaks down the shootout on an Afghanistan hillside that left him seriously wounded and took the life of one of the young Marines under his command. Details

When a convoy of supply trucks takes a wrong turn, they travel north up "Ambush Alley" almost to the end before they recognize their mistake and turn around. Returning south, they've almost made it back to the Euphrates River when gunfire explodes from buildings on both sides of the road.

North Hollywood Shootout!, Season 1 44:40 2005-09-13  $1.99  See Preview/Download
     This is the story of the fiercest gun battle in US police history. On February 28, 1997, a high-stakes bank robbery went awry and devolved into an urban firefight that became one of the most violent shootouts in law enforcement history. With TV cameras capturing the action from above, two paramilitary-style gunmen take over a bank using terrorist technology. Donning full body armor and automatic weapons, they charge out of a Bank of America branch in North Hollywood, California, and with brutal and brazen disregard, they fire armor-piercing ammo at police and citizens, turning a congested residential area into a combat zone that ends with deaths and numerous injuries. Police on the scene that day recount their ordeal that very dangerous day. Details
Battle for Baghdad Shootout!, Season 1 44:46 2005-08-23  $1.99  See Preview/Download
     For 21 days in the spring of 2003, two US Army and Marine divisions race north across the Iraqi desert from Kuwait. Their mission: seize the Iraqi capital as quickly as possible. The planners of Operation Iraqi Freedom believe that taking Baghdad in a hurry will be like "cutting off the head of the snake" and will bring a speedy end to the war. But it won't be a cakewalk. A tenacious force of guerrilla fighters throw up roadblocks. They call themselves Saddam Fedayeen -- Saddam's Men of Sacrifice. The Fedayeen weapon of choice is the RPG -- the rocket-propelled grenade. This nasty piece of handheld artillery can stop the Marines' thin-shelled armored personnel carrier, and it can even put a tank out of commission if it hits it in just the right spot. We'll hear from troops who found themselves on the receiving end of punishing RPG barrages and veterans who recount stories of brutal shootouts on the bloody road to Baghdad. Details
WWII Assault on Germany Shootout!, Season 1 44:50 2005-08-16  $1.99  See Preview/Download
     In 1944, General Eisenhower's order was short and to the point: destroy the German army. If successful, Allied forces would win the war in Europe. To American GIs that meant defeating a foe bent on defending his homeland at all cost. This episode recounts and reenacts the experiences of US soldiers who participated in one of WWII's greatest military campaigns Through interviews, archival footage, and recreations, vets share graphic memories of penetrating the Siegfried Line, the formidable German border-defense system; fighting in the Hurtgen Forest, a dark, dense wooded area that rendered tanks and air power useless; and sewing up the industrial region known as the Ruhr Pocket. Veterans put viewers right in harm's way with their deeply personal stories of what it was like to conquer Germany one pillbox, one troop shelter, one hilltop, and one town at a time. They shed tears over lost comrades and reveal the effects of combat, including psychological stress that still haunts them. Details
Wild West Shootout!, Season 1 44:44 2005-08-02  $1.99  See Preview/Download
     Savage...sadistic...often justified -- America's western frontier triggered many a shootout. The motivation? Money...women...religion -- sometimes a dirty look triggered a melee. Western shootouts were messy, drunken, and deadly affairs. The vision of two gunslingers meeting in the street at high noon is pure myth. Shootouts were typically up-close and personal. They involved lawmen against outlaws, outlaws against outlaws, and sometimes lawmen against lawmen. We take a look at the Northfield Raid (James/Younger Gang vs. the Town of Northfield), the shootout at Hanska Slough (James/Younger Gang vs. the Medelia Posse), and Ingalls Raid (Doolin/Dalton Gang vs. US Marshals). And as we provide the motivation, strategy, and tactics, and examine the firearms involved on both sides of the gun battles, we detail each phase of the combat and its aftermath. Details
Guadalcanal Shootout!, Season 1 44:47 2005-07-26  $1.99  See Preview/Download
     A small island in the southwestern Pacific, Guadalcanal was the place the US chose to confront the Japanese on the ground for the first time in WWII. Here, beginning in August 1942, Americans and Japanese were brought face-to-face in close-quarter shootouts that became a turning point of the war. From the near-total annihilation of Colonel Frank Goettge's intelligence patrol to the battles of Bloody Ridge, both sides learned what the other was made of. The Japanese were willing to fight to the death, and the Americans were eager to offer them that chance. The victory ultimately belonged to the US, but in the man-on-man struggles that characterized the campaign, winning or losing became personal and the difference between survival and death. Experience the thick of battle from the perspective of soldiers from both sides. Details
D-Day: Fallujah Shootout!, Season 1 44:46 2005-07-19  $1.99  See Preview/Download
     November 2004 -- Fallujah, Iraq has become a viper pit. Over the last six months, this once holy city has become the center of gravity for the Iraqi insurgency with Al Qaeda terrorists and Islamic radicals from across the Muslim world congregating here to resist the US occupation. Many have come to martyr themselves and to take as many coalition troops with them as possible. On November 8, six battalions of US soldiers and Marines storm the city to kill the insurgents. It will be the fight of their lives. With riveting and insightful commentary from the men who sweated and bled on the dusty avenues of Fallujah, this episode highlights the strategies, cutting-edge technologies, and harrowing stories of mortal combat -- many told here for the first time -- of the deadliest house-to-house street brawl since the battle for Hue City, Vietnam. As one Marine tells us, if Fallujah isn't hell, it's in the same zip code. Details
