Tony Robinson: WWII by Drone uses cutting-edge CGI and drone-mounted technology to bring Europe’s sleeping battlefields to life like never before, as military experts crisscross the continent in search of long-forgotten secrets. It’s a six-part ode to war’s reality and the brave souls who fought for our freedom.

In the first episode, Battle Of The Bulge, conflict archaeologists set out to uncover the hidden remains of one of World War II’s deadliest battles, armed with the latest drone-mounted radar technology. Winston Churchill called the Battle of the Bulge, also known as “Hitler’s Last Gamble,” “the greatest American battle of the war.” It was Germany’s final offensive on the Western Front, fought between December 1944 and January 1945. Nearly 20,000 US soldiers were killed in the battle, including many African American front-line troops who are often overlooked.
