MILITARY CHANNEL EXAMINES THE "MISSIONS THAT CHANGED THE WAR" IN NEW SERIES NARRATED BY GARY SINISE

- Second Installment, GERMANY'S LAST ACE, Premieres Tuesday, March 15 at 9 PM -

(Silver Spring, Md.)� Actor Gary Sinise narrates this high-quality series which recounts the covert operations and brave soldiers that altered the face of World War II. Divided into three separate four-hour miniseries, MISSIONS THAT CHANGED THE WAR profiles: "The Doolittle Raid," a seemingly insignificant mission that was designed to boost American morale but in retrospect, had a vital effect on the war with Japan; "Germany's Last Ace," a first-person account of Gunter Rall, the most decorated aviator in Hitler's Luftwaffe, as he describes the misguided Nazi strategy on the eastern front; and "The Flying Tigers," a series of bombing missions that prevented the fall of China. Pivotal moments, high stakes operations and heroic missions that defined history are showcased in every episode of MISSIONS THAT CHANGED THE WAR.

Each subject in MISSIONS THAT CHANGED THE WAR will air as a four-hour mini-series:

Germany's Last Ace

Four-Part Miniseries Airing Tuesdays at 9 PM from March 15-April 5

Gunter Rall, the most decorated aviator in Hitler's Luftwaffe, tells in his own words how he fought daily on the Russian Front. When he was called back into service to defend Germany from daily Allied bombing raids, he was shot down for the ninth and final time. Rall explains the flawed Nazi strategy on the eastern front, how he survived being shot down multiple times and how he became a NATO General after WWII.

The Flying Tigers

Four-Part Miniseries Airing Tuesdays at 9 PM from June 7-June 28

This four-hour miniseries is based on the extended first person narratives of David Lee "Tex" Hill and Johnny Alison, two of the most celebrated members of the AVG (American Volunteer Group) Flying Tigers. The AVG was a band of mercenary volunteers that was charged with menacing Japanese aircraft over China. One mission that seemed routine prevented the Japanese Army from linking up with their German allies in oil-rich North Africa, and kept both China and India in allied hands for the remainder of the war.

The Doolittle Raid

Four-Part Miniseries Premiered October 26-November 16

This raid was intended by President Roosevelt to raise the morale of a war-stunned America following the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Instead, it set into motion a series of tactical missteps by the Japanese Navy and Air Force that resulted in the decimation of the Japanese war machine in the Pacific. This miniseries features never-before-seen narratives of two of the nine surviving Doolittle Raiders, Dick Cole, who was Jimmy Doolittle's co-pilot, and Tom Griffin, the navigator who created all of the top secret mapping, charting and targeting.

MISSIONS THAT CHANGED THE WAR is produced by Sleeping Dog Productions, Inc. for Military Channel. Jon Tennyson is the executive producer for Sleeping Dog Productions. Bob Scanlon is executive producer for Military Channel and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager, Military Channel, Investigation Discovery and HD Theater.
