Taking on the worst that the Luftwaffe had to offer the Mustang fighter pilots of the 8th Air Force dramatically turned the tide of the air war in Europe earning themselves the nickname 'Little Friends'.

Throughout the vicious Pacific struggle of World War Two, there was one class of fighting machines that were at the spearhead of every naval battle. Over 800 feet in length and at over 27 .000 tons, the Aircraft Carriers were the largest ships built by the US in World War Two. With the ability to launch hundreds of fighter bombers against shipping and island bases, they tore to the heart of the enemy. They wrought a terrifying destruction on the Japanese, and played a major role in the final victory against Japan. The pride of the U.S. Navy Pacific fleet during WWII was the Essex Class aircraft carriers. They were able to launch hundreds of aircraft against the enemy with devastating results, and despite Japanese kamikaze attacks, not one Essex carrier was lost. Using archival footage, this film goes into battle and below decks with the Essex carriers, showing what it was like to serve aboard these floating cities during WWII.

Go on patrol and into action with the PBY Catalina flying boat–known as the "Cat"–one of the truly great aircraft designs. Introduced in 1935 as a long-range patrol aircraft, it was becoming obsolete when America entered WWII. But, easy to manufacture in large numbers, the Cat continued in production and excelled in almost every theater of war. But it was as a night bomber that the legendary "Black Cat" squadrons won fame in the battles of the Solomon Islands. Combining archival footage, modern re-enactments and the memories of crewmembers, this film tells the story of the PBY Catalina. Relive the many battles where the Catalina played a pivotal role–from spotting the Bismarck to locating the Japanese fleet off Midway–and hear from members of the "Black Cat" squadrons that bombed Japanese convoys at night. It was slow, lumbering and ponderous–but it was one of the most successful aircraft of WWII.

In the years after World War II, Soviet tank design improved rapidly, leaving the West far behind. With most military planners still assuming that the plains of Europe were the location most likely to see an outbreak of war, it became increasingly clear that the West, and particularly the United States, needed to develop a radically better tank. The result was the M1 Abrams. BATTLE STATIONS reveals that while the Abrams was faster, more powerful and better protected than any other tank ever made, it was also rushed into duty in an environment starkly different than the one the designers had in mind. But as extensive footage from the Gulf War shows, it was more than up to the task, and the revolutionary weapon completely outclassed its Soviet-made counterparts in the Iraqi desert. Filled with the testimony of the men who served aboard them, M1 ABRAMS–SUPERTANK! is the definitive story of the most sophisticated tank ever made.
