-- Special Programming Stunt Airs Sunday, November 9 Through Sunday, November 16 --

(Silver Spring, Md.) - For one whole week this November, every day will be Veterans Day on American Heroes Channel (AHC). Honoring the great defenders of our freedom, AHC dedicates eight days of programming to heroes who bravely served their country, selflessly stepping into harm's way to defend the greater good, with its first-ever DUTY, HONOR, COURAGE WEEK. Spanning generations of service across major military events of the past century, the stunt honors military heroes from Sunday, November 9 through Sunday, November 16.

Featuring extraordinary stories of real-world heroism, distinguished courage, and personal sacrifice, DUTY, HONOR, COURAGE WEEK is highlighted by the premiere of the one-hour special THE REAL INGLORIOUS BASTARDS and a new episode of D-DAY TO VICTORY.


One-Hour Special Premieres on Veterans Day: Tuesday, November 11 at 10/9c

Revealing the incredible, true inspiration behind Quentin Tarantino's film Inglourious Basterds, THE REAL INGLORIOUS BASTARDS tells the story of Jewish-American refugees from Nazi Germany who went boldly behind enemy lines to seek vengeance. Through vivid first-person accounts from the extraordinary OSS veterans, gripping dramatic reconstructions, CGI and archive, the intrepid trio's hair-raising 'Operation Greenup' is brought to life, revealing one of the most successful and daring covert operations of World War II.


New Episode: "Battle of the Bulge" Premieres Saturday, November 15 at 10/9c

As the Allies closed in on Germany, Hitler launched a last gasp offensive, using his final resources to try to split the Allied armies and retake Antwerp. He almost managed it. The Ardennes offensive took place in an inaccessible hill and forest country in the dead of winter. Against prepared Panzer armies stood unprepared and overstretched US infantry divisions.
