not planed. TV Show was canceled.
WWII's Greatest Raids is a series that takes you into the heart of an elite band of soldiers in the heat of a key action in their history, and follows them on the mission to show just how these men put their unique combination of skills, training and equipment to the test of combat. We'll explore just how celebrated outfits such as the U.S. Army Rangers, the British Special Air Service and the Black Devil Brigade have changed the course of a battle, or perhaps even a war, through their courage, daring and commitment.
U.S. Army Rangers play a crucial role in the Invasion of Normandy, the largest amphibious assault in history. They must conquer vertical cliffs before taking on the determined enemy. Then destroy the guns that threaten to blow the Allied fleet out of the water.
The Black Devils, an elite mountain warfare unit made up of American and Canadian commandos, take on heavily entrenched German defenses during World War II in 1943. This is the First Special Service Force in Italy mounting a do-or-die night-time assault up a treacherous mountain, in extreme weather.
A brave band of regular GI's are tasked with saving the last bridge and final gateway to the Third Reich. The bridge is bristling with German guns and loaded with explosives. Worse, the enemy plan to destroy the bridge if the American unit assaults it.
The British Light Infantry enters northern France by glider, then seizes two important bridges from a heavily armed enemy.
The British Army's Special Air Service launches a daring raid behind enemy lines on a German airfield in the Sahara Desert. If they succeed in destroying Rommel's supply planes, their action could turn the tide of war and allow the British to drive the Germans out of North Africa.
A look back at the British Commandos' cunning raid in 1942; in a ship disguised as a German destroyer, they targeted the vital, heavily-defended German port at St. Nazaire, France. Their mission: to take out the dock facilities before they become a base for Germany's biggest battleship.
