Bombing Hitler's Superguns Spring 1943. World War II is slowly beginning to turn in favor of the Allied forces. But Hitler, growing desperate, hatches plans for a diabolical weapon: a bank of ""superguns"" housed in a massive underground complex in Nazi-occupied northern France. All together, the guns would be able to pump 300 heavy high-explosive shells into downtown London every hour - a target 100 miles away. This weapon could spell doom for the Allies. But how can such a massive gun possibly work?

Join NOVA as engineers, archaeologists, and World War II historians investigate this fearsome weapon. And discover the two audacious missions designed to destroy the seemingly impregnable supergun complex, one of which is led by none other than Joseph Kennedy, Jr. Can these hair-raising missions save the Allied forces?

Hitlers Supergun video was a great video, as were the Nazi Mega Weapons videos. They really fill in a lot of areas where I previously only knew very little.

Very educational and great history information. I watch it over and over with other family members. We all love your shows! The only downside would be the cost as we know it could be lower (the cost of making a dvd is very cheap). You at least give those of us on limited incomes/seniors/disabled etc. a discount - pls consider this.
