MILITARY CHANNEL RECONSTRUCTS MODERN MILITARY BATTLES THROUGH FIRST-PERSON, EYEWITNESS ACCOUNTS IN NEW SERIES "ULTIMATE WARFARE"

--Combining Actual Battlefield Footage with Stylized Recreations, ULTIMATE WARFARE Airs Tuesdays at 10PM (E/P) Beginning January 29--

(Silver Spring, MD) - This January, the Military Channel presents an all-new original series, ULTIMATE WARFARE, which 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, ULTIMATE WARFARE documents the most decisive modern military battles from the first-person perspective of the servicemen who lived to tell the tale. Combining authentic battlefield footage and highly stylized recreations with CGI and cutting-edge graphics, the 10-part series ULTIMATE WARFARE premieres on Military Channel on Tuesday, January 29 at 10 PM (E/P).

Tension, grit, courage and strategy are at the forefront of each hour-long 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, ULTIMATE WARFARE sheds new light on these iconic military battles, bringing the audience into the battlefield experience as if they were there.

"The innovative production style of ULTIMATE WARFARE places the audience into the heart of the action as the battles unfold, allowing us to see critical moments in military history in a way that hasn't been visualized before," said Ed Hersh, SVP of Content Strategy for the Military Channel. "Through intimate accounts from those who were staring death in the face, this new series provides our viewers with an edge-of-your-seat view of these pivotal moments in history they can't find anywhere else."

The premiere episode on January 29 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. ULTIMATE WARFARE 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.
