"Ultimate Warfare" (TV show) is a Military Channel series that takes viewers on a totally immersive journey that portrays real-life combat from the soldier's-eye-view of battle. From battlefields of wars past and present, the series documents the most decisive modern military battles from the first-person perspective of the servicemen who lived to tell the tale. It combines authentic battlefield footage and highly stylized recreations with CGI and cutting-edge graphics.

Tension, grit, courage and strategy are at the forefront of each episode, as soldiers relive the critical moments they faced, where every decision could mean the difference between life and death. From the Battle of Midway in World War II right up to Fallujah in Iraq, the series sheds new light on these iconic military battles, bringing the audience into the battlefield experience as if they were there.

The premiere episode tells the story of "Baghdad: Thunder Runs." In 2003, in what would become one of the most brutal and decisive battles of the Iraq war, a battalion of tanks punched a hole right into the heart of Saddam Hussein's Baghdad. The attack helped gain insight into how the Iraqi soldiers functioned, and the success marked the beginning of the end of the Hussein Empire. Hear from the soldiers who were entrenched inside the tanks, including: Lt. Col. Eric Schwartz, who committed his men into Baghdad and led his team as the first mechanized force to enter a capital city since WWII; as well as Sgt. 1st Cl. Jonathan Lustig, who was the first man into Hussein's palace when the United States took it under siege, and was the first to see the attack coming to alert his men to mount a defense.

In addition to Baghdad, additional episodes of the series bring viewers to the frontlines of other modern battles such as Kandahar and Fallujah. The series also revisits wars past, such as: Hue and Khe Sanh from the Vietnam War; Chosin from the Korean War; and Midway, Okinawa, the Battle of the Bulge, and the Battle for Leyte Gulf from WWII.

"Ultimate Warfare" is produced by Arrow Media with Thomas Viner as producer and Tom Brisley as executive producer. For Military Channel, Ron Simon is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Ed Hersh is senior vice president of content strategy, and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager.
