Where soldiers die, history is made. BATTLEFIELD DETECTIVES offers a remarkably fresh and exhilarating look at the most fascinating conflicts in history by focusing on the bloody ground where they were waged. The ambition of this groundbreaking series is nothing less than definitively re-examining what we think we know about history’s great clashes. BATTLEFIELD DETECTIVES redefines the military documentary by utilizing every possible technique – demonstrations, reenactments, advanced forensic and historical analysis, and more – to perfectly clarify battles from the legendary to the obscure.
WWII hung in the balance in December of 1944. By all rights, the Nazi’s bold, shocking Ardennes Offensive should have routed the Allied forces hunkered down in the cold Belgian countryside. But, while the front certainly bulged during the two months of terrible fighting, it never collapsed.
BATTLEFIELD DETECTIVES investigates the horrific Battle of the Bulge and discovers why the German Army failed and the world escaped its unending tyranny.
