  • Assault On The Mariana Islands

    · War Stories w/ Oliver North

    Say "D-Day" and most people will think of the Normandy invasion in June of 1944. But many remarkable amphibious landings played out during World War II. During the same month "Operation Overlord" unfolded in Europe, another massive armada began. "Operation Forager" stood ready to storm the beaches of the Mariana Islands. 3700 miles from Hawaii, the Mariana Islands were the main Pacific outpost for the Japanese Empire. Fiercely defended by over 70,000 Japanese troops, the island airfields on Saipan, Guam and Tinian were "must have pieces of real estate." If taken, swarms of our massive four engine B-29 bombers would be able to devastate mainland Japan and stop the war machine in its tracks. On these tiny islands, the 100,000 soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines faced a determined enemy. The Japanese defenders had been given a simple order...absolutely no surrender. Our victory would come at a very high price. This chilling episode of "War Stories with Oliver North" brings you onto the "white sands of hell." You'll hear of an enemy 4,000 strong in a "banzai" charge. You will also hear the actual recording of an amphibious landing of Marines hitting the beach. And you will witness how thousands of Japanese civilians took their own lives at "Suicide Gulch." From the "Great Mariana's Turkey Shoot" you will meet legendary Navy ace pilot Alex Vraciu. He shot down six Japanese bombers in less than eight minutes. Check out these other free FOX News podcasts!

  • The Battle Of Midway

    · War Stories w/ Oliver North

    For the sailors, airmen and Marines who survived it, the epic Battle of Midway in June 1942 is forever seared in their memories. Though they didn't know it at the time, it was the turning point in our fight against the Japanese during World War II. It took brilliant intelligence work, expert battle planning and the leadership of a determined Admiral named Chester W. Nimitz to defeat the Japanese, who were at their strongest militarily. They had won every battle in the South Pacific, while a substantial portion of our Navy lay at the bottom of Pearl Harbor. In this exciting episode of "War Stories with Oliver North," you'll hear how an intelligence unit called "Station Hypo" ingeniously broke the Japanese code and steered us to victory in the Pacific. You'll meet two pilots - one Japanese, the other American - who tell how they bombed each other's ships. This was a war of nerves between two legendary admirals - Chester W. Nimitz and Isoroku Yamamoto. Together, they squared off in the Pacific to fight what history named "The Battle of the Century." Check out these other free FOX News podcasts!

  • Masterstroke: The Battle For Seoul

    · War Stories w/ Oliver North

    It was called MacArthur's masterstroke - a daring amphibious assault - deep behind enemy lines - and it changed the course of the Korean War. In June of 1950 the North Korean People's Army - backed by the Soviet Union - invaded South Korea. By August - American and South Korean troops had been pushed back into a tiny perimeter on the peninsula's southern coast. It was a desperate situation - requiring a bold, daring solution and Douglas MacArthur had one: place 70,000 U.S. & South Korean marines and soldiers on 320 ships, have them navigate the treacherous 30-foot tides to scale the seawall at Inchon - and then fight their way inland to liberate Seoul, South Korea's capital. In this powerful episode of "War Stories with Oliver North", you'll meet the extraordinary men - Americans and Korean - who fought those terrible battles - and accomplished what few believed could ever be done. To show you how their courage still inspires a new generation of American and South Korean troops today, we went to Inchon, Seoul - and the DMZ - the demilitarized zone that separates the democratic south from the communist north. Join us in this podcast - as we visit the battlefields where MacArthur's masterstroke was fought - and see if you aren't inspired as well. Check out these other free FOX News podcasts!

  • Bomber Boys

    · War Stories w/ Oliver North

    The Boeing B-17 "Flying Fortress" and B-24 "Flying Boxcar" dropped more than a million tons of bombs over Nazi targets in Europe from 1942 to 1945. Missions to the oil fields of Romania and the rail yards and Messerschmidt plants of Germany targeted the Nazi war machine and its ability to make war. But, these missions weren't without a price. The young bomber boys would fly their aircraft through skies thick with anti-aircraft fire, called flak, and the dreaded German fighters of the Luftwaffe. If their plane was downed, they usually faced two options: death or capture. Almost half of those who took off from bases in England, North Africa, and Italy didn't make it back. You'll hear the riveting story of a 21-year-old pilot named George McGovern who crashed his plane three times and lived to become part of our history. In this exciting podcast of "War Stories with Oliver North", you'll learn about the story of the other front line... the skies over Europe. This is where the pilots, navigators, gunners and bombardiers of the Army Air Corps stared death in the face on every mission they flew. Check out these other free FOX News podcasts!

As the reign of Hitler's Nazi Germany was in its last throes, the war in the Pacific was becoming more brutal as the Americans inched closer to the Japanese homeland. The Japanese were determined to make one last stand, and they would fight to the death. One soldier described the fighting on Okinawa as "the most ghastly corner of hell" he had ever witnessed.

  • Harry S. Truman

    · War Stories w/ Oliver North

    He was a small man from small town Missouri, who spent the first six decades of his life toiling in relative obscurity, but Harry S. Truman became larger than life and was there when America needed him the most. In this special edition of "War Stories with Oliver North," you'll learn of Truman's love of country, public service and yes, even his love of poker. Harry Truman walked into history's spotlight on April 12, 1945, when he has sworn into office as the nation's 33rd President following the death of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Afterwards he said with absolute candor, "it is as though the sun, the moon and the stars have fallen on me." It seems hard to believe today but as Vice President - Truman was never informed about FDR's plans for ending the carnage of World War II - or the powerful secret weapon being developed to hasten our victory. Oliver North spoke exclusively to the three surviving members of his administration: George Elsey; Ken Hechler; and Milton Kayle as they reflect not only Truman the politician, but Truman the man and leader. Also in this episode, you will hear from Truman's eldest grandson, Clifton Truman Daniel, who sheds light on the enormous challenges he faced as President: whether to use the Atom bomb; how to counter Soviet expansion and rebuild Europe and Japan; and a war in Korea. At home, he had to contend with an inflating economy, bitter labor disputes and crippling strikes, and a politically polarizing hunt for communists in the U.S. Harry Truman helped shape the United States and the world, but through it all Truman remained a man of the people. His legacy is one of a good man who rose to the occasion and took on the greatest challenges of his time. Check out these other free FOX News podcasts!

  • The Doolittle Raid

    · War Stories w/ Oliver North

    On April 18, 1942, barely four months after Americans were rocked by the news of the Pearl Harbor attacks, 16 specially modified B-25 bombers flew into history. Their mission? To surprise the enemy and bomb downtown Tokyo and four other Japanese cities. Manning these planes were 80 brave volunteers from the Army Air Corps. For all intents and purposes, what they set out to accomplish looked like a suicide mission. They succeeded in taking Japan completely by surprise because they flew these big land-based Army bombers, loaded down with gas and bombs, off the deck of a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier, something no one had ever tried before and something the Japanese never expected. They were the Doolittle Raiders, named for their leader, the daring aviation pioneer, Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle. Hollywood has often told the story of these brave men, but in this gripping episode of "War Stories with Oliver North," you'll hear the real story of the Doolittle Tokyo raiders from the men themselves, in their own words. These are the men who restored the confidence of a shaken nation and changed the course of the Second World War. Check out these other free FOX News podcasts!

  • The Navy’s Fighting Seabees

    · War Stories w/ Oliver North

    With their trademark of a fierce and determined bee carrying hammer in one hand and a Tommy gun in the other, no other branch of the U.S. Navy has served in more theaters of war or tackled more challenging missions than the Seabees. Admiral Ernest J. King, chief of Naval Operations during World War II, said: "Seabee ingenuity and fortitude have become a legend in the naval service." Indeed it has. The Seabees are the U.S. Navy's construction battalions. From the sweltering jungles of Guadalcanal, to the arid deserts of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan, they've upheld their proud tradition as fighters who build and builders who fight. In this riveting episode of "War Stories With Oliver North," we pay tribute to the often-overlooked men and women of the Navy's fighting Seabees. You'll meet Joseph Shawinsky of the 133rd Naval Construction Battalion, who landed beside the Marines on Iwo Jima and lived to tell the story. You'll also hear from two members of Vietnam-era Seabee Team 1104 -- Johnny McCully and Frank Peterlin -- who served with Marvin Shields, the first and only Seabee to have received the Congressional Medal of Honor. And go along for a day in the life of the new generation of Seabees at Ft. Hunter Liggett, California and you'll hear how these warrior builders are being trained today for the global War on Terror.

  • In The Jaws Of Hell: Eastern Europe In WWII

    · War Stories w/ Oliver North

    During World War II, Eastern Europe was often called "the lands between", a region defined by its vulnerability to shifts in power between its dominant neighbors. One of those countries caught in the jaws of hell was Romania. To its west was an obvious enemy, Adolf Hitler; and to its east, was Josef Stalin. Though officially an ally, Stalin had already murdered millions of his own people and had sinister plans to expand his Communist empire, starting with Eastern Europe. This region--including Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland and Romania-- has struggled long and hard, enduring decades of brutal Communist dictatorship spawned from the ashes of World War II. In this riveting episode of "War Stories with Oliver North," we travel to Bucharest to bring you an exclusive interview with King Michael of Romania, one of the last surviving heads of state from World War II. You'll hear first hand how the inexperienced 19-year-old monarch fell into tangled web between East and West. Caught in this terrible vice, King Michael stood up to Hitler to save his country from Soviet occupation, only to become a victim of the power struggle between Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Josef Stalin. And, learn how King Michael's coup gave OSS spy chief William Donovan an opportunity to send his agents to spy on the Germans, then on the Russians. You will also meet two Americans flyboys, Bill Fili and Paul Swearingen, whose B-24 Liberator "Destiny Deb" was shot down over Romania and who spent four months as prisoners of war. And, come along as Bill Fili visits the very same oil refinery complex in Ploesti he was sent to bomb in 1944. Check out these other free FOX News podcasts!

  • Operation Rolling Thunder

    · War Stories w/ Oliver North

    "We have met the enemy and they are us." Cartoonist Walt Kelly's twist on Oliver Hazard Perry's famous line is a fitting sentiment for the little known operation codenamed "Rolling Thunder." In March of 1965, President Lyndon Johnson's campaign to bomb North Vietnam began. The fear of a wider war made LBJ extremely cautious. Rather than begin "Rolling Thunder" with a series of massive air strikes aimed at destroying our enemy's will to fight, LBJ opted for "gradual escalation." Never in our history had a president been so involved in the details of target selection and tactics. Our pilots were forced to watch enemy surface to air missile sites being built, unable to attack them until the enemy fired first. Communist MiG fighter jets could be attacked only after they took off. As a result, Ho Chi Minh's airfields were protected for years by an order from a President of the United States. Johnson's cautious approach allowed North Vietnam time to prepare defenses and study our tactics. Parts of North Vietnam became the most heavily defended air space in the history of warfare. MiGs, surface to air missiles and thousands of anti-aircraft guns opposed our pilots. It was a painful situation for the men of the Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps tasked with flying the missions. But they dutifully carried out their oath to "defend the Constitution against all enemies." In this compelling episode of "War Stories with Oliver North," you will meet pilots George "Bud" Day and Paul Galanti. Shot down over enemy territory, they spent a combined 12 years in brutal captivity. You'll learn how the skies over Vietnam became a proving ground for new weapons and tactics. You will hear the remarkable story of "Pardo's Push" -- one of aviation's most dramatic and dangerous rescues. We will also bring you Air Force legend Robin Olds, who led "Operation Bolo" in January of 1967. It was a classic Trojan horse, and it severely stung our enemy.

  • Agent 146: Spying For The Third Reich

    · War Stories w/ Oliver North

    “Knowledge is power,” wrote the English philosopher Sir Francis Bacon. And that’s the essence of what spying is all about, attaining information, and therefore, power over an adversary. During World War II, the Abwehr, Germany’s intelligence service, made numerous attempts to infiltrate the United States with spies. Usually dropped off by a U-Boat, their mission was to commit acts of sabotage and to gather top-secret intelligence that would help Germany win the war. But most of the time, they failed. For the first time, in a “War Stories” exclusive, you’ll meet Agent 146, Erich Gimpel, a former German spy, and Allan Gillies, the FBI agent who ultimately captured him. Find out how they played a dangerous game of cat and mouse in the bustling streets of New York City. In this thrilling episode of “War Stories with Oliver North,” you’ll also hear how the FBI and OSS fought their own war in the shadows to overcome rivalries and to stop those who came to do us harm.

  • Anzio

    · War Stories w/ Oliver North

    The Italian town of Anzio, located on the Mediterranean Sea, was the birthplace of Roman Emperors Caligula and Nero. A tranquil agricultural area in the fall of 1943, it would become the site of one of the longest and bloodiest battles of World War II. From January to May 1944, the seemingly unbreakable German line that blocked all roads to Rome. At Anzio young men lost their limbs, their lives and their innocence. Hand-to-hand combat, living in water filled trenches, and deadly artillery barrages were just part of the daily routine. The enemy could be and usually was anywhere and everywhere. Each time the Allies made some progress it seemed that German Field Marshall Albert Kesselring came right back and inflicted more punishment and devastation on the Allied troops. By its end, the Allied casualties would exceed 60,000. This episode of “War Stories with Oliver North” brings you the personal memories of the men who lived through the Italian campaign of 1944. Their stories are of resilience and epic bravery and of triumph in the face of defeat during the bloodiest stalemate of World War II, the battle of Anzio.
