Imagine you've just been rendered a refugee in the country where you were born--the country that has been the home of your ancestors for more than 2,500 years. You walk hundreds of miles with only what you can carry, until you run out of land. The brutal enemy that's following you is raping, mutilating, shooting, burning, and beheading your friends and neighbors. At the water's edge, you see before you 22 warships flying the flags of the Western democracies. With the city burning behind you and the enemy shooting at you from both sides, you're faced with only one option. You jump into the water and swim for your life. You're relieved to reach the Allied warships anchored in the harbor. But something is wrong! The sailors won't let you come aboard. Instead they use hoses and hot water to prevent you from climbing onboard. You look back toward the quay, but you're too exhausted to swim to shore. Suddenly you realize you're out of options. Is this a bad dream? Would civilized nations of the world order their sailors to stand down and watch you drown? It's finally time to learn the real story of the Peacemakers! 1. Language: English.

Then, in a radical rewriting of history, Japanese forces sweep into Australia, foreign agents begin a campaign of terror in the USA, and Germany prepares for an all-out attack on Britain. The 21st-century forces must resort to the most extreme measures yet and face a future rife with possibilities - all of them apocalyptic.

After a year of independence, the government and people of the Confederacy were beginning to worry. During their first year after seceding from the United States, everything had gone well. In 1861 and early 1862 the rebel army enjoyed success after success, and the initial optimism of those in the North who thought the rebels could be defeated in a few months had settled into the grim acknowledgement that the war would take years and cost many thousands of lives. Now things were turning against the South. It had lost ground in the west, and more seriously its economy was being strangled by a Union naval blockade on its ports. At the beginning of the war, Union General Winfield Scott had rightly seen that one of the Union’s greatest advantages was that it had far more warships. He introduced the Anaconda Plan, in which the Navy encircled the Confederacy like a vast snake, blocking every port and major river and cutting it off from the outside world. The Confederate Navy tried to fight off the blockade but was seriously outgunned. Confederate blockade runners, independent operators with fast ships, became national heroes for their daring races across the ocean with Union warships hot on their heels. While their adventures made for good headlines, the goods they slipped through the blockade weren’t nearly enough to solve the chronic shortages. The South needed a different solution. It needed some sort of vessel that could defeat the blockading ships and yet be within the financial and technological means of the Confederate war chest. It was the proposed solution to this problem that led to one of the strangest and inspiring stories of the Civil War—that of the CSS H. L. Hunley, the first submarine to successfully sink an enemy vessel. It is the story of its obsessive inventor, Horace Lawson Hunley, and his brave and determined crewmembers. It is also a story of technology well ahead of its time. However, as historic and groundbreak 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Kollins.

Welcome to the final, heart-pounding episode of the Scrapyard Ship series. It's all about to end in one climatic crescendo. The story continues with Captain Jason Reynolds and his team: Billy, Rizzo, and the rhino-warrior, Traveler. They must attempt to rescue Ricket and Gaddy, still held captive aboard the impregnable Dreathlor prison barge. Only after the rescue can Jason return to the Lilly, his highly advanced Caldurian vessel...where it all began. The elusive Admiral Ot-Mul, leader of the Craing Drac-Vin forces, has not only survived, but thrived in the far outer-reaches of space. With hundreds of thousands of warships under his command, Ot-Mul's combined fleets are on the move. But, in truth, he cares about little else than making one man suffer...Captain Jason Reynolds. With an enormous fighting force on the horizon, it's the last call to battle. Will the decimated Allied worlds reunite one more time? Will Ot-Mul get his vengeance by taking those most dear to Jason - Mollie, Boomer, Nan, and Dira - and using them to rip Jason's world and his very existence apart? 1. Language: English. Narrator: L.
