HISTORY(R) TO CELEBRATE PRESIDENTS DAY WITH A GROUNDBREAKING LOOK AT EIGHT SOLDIERS WHO SERVED DURING WWII AND CHANGED THE WORLD IN TWO-NIGHT EVENT 'PRESIDENTS AT WAR' PREMIERING SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 17 AT 8PM ET/PT

Network to Air Additional Presidential Themed Programming Including One-Hour Specials 'The Secret History Of The White House' and 'The Secret History Of Air Force One'

New York, NY - January 23, 2019 - HISTORY(R) honors Presidents Day with a landmark two-night event, "Presidents at War," premiering consecutively on Sunday, February 17 at 8pm ET/PT and Monday, February 18 at 8pm ET/PT. The specials tell the story of World War II through the remarkable experiences of eight men who served in active duty - Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush - eight men who would go on to be Presidents. Each was changed by the crucible of war, which shaped the decisions they made when they reached the White House.

Like sixteen million other Americans, these eight future presidents bravely served their country during its darkest hour, and then went on to further service as the nation's Commanders-in-Chief. Their experiences give a vivid picture of both the European and Pacific theaters of battle in World War II. Nineteen-year-old bomber pilot George H.W. Bush and twenty-five-year-old PT Boat commander John F. Kennedy fight on the front lines in the Pacific, as do Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. Fifty-two-year-old General Dwight D. Eisenhower, a man who had never seen combat before the outbreak of the war, goes on to become the Supreme Allied Commander of the war in Europe, seizing it back from Nazi control.

These are men who played a first-hand role in the war effort. They become leaders who steer the nation through conflict and turmoil in the last half of what becomes known as the American century, fueled by lessons they learned during the 20th century's defining war.

"Presidents at War" is produced for HISTORY by RAW, an All3 Media company. Sam Maynard serves as the executive producer for RAW, an All3 Media company. Mary E. Donahue serves as the executive producer for HISTORY.

Additional programming airing as part of HISTORY's Presidents Day slate includes:

"The Secret History of The White House" - One-Hour Special Premiering Sunday, February 17 at 10pm ET/PT

In 2010 tall fences went up outside the West Wing of the White House. This massive $376 million-dollar construction project was intensely guarded from the prying eyes of the press and downplayed as nothing more than a routine upgrade to the wiring and air conditioning systems of the White House. What is the true story behind this sprawling, multistory structure whose underground assembly required truckloads of heavy-duty concrete and steel beams? Many have speculated that the real center of power for the White House is underground. From the first bunkers built to protect FDR and Truman, to the rumored passageways, elevators and vault doors with biometric access control systems, "Secret History of the White House" explores both the hidden and known lairs that that lie beneath the most important piece of real estate in America.

"The Secret History of The White House" is produced for HISTORY by Railsplitter Pictures. Matt Ginsburg, Tim Healy and Chris Bray serve as executive producers for Railsplitter Pictures. Jennifer Wagman serves as the executive producer for HISTORY.

After brutal testing, two smiths pull ahead to move on to their home forge to recreate an intricate Presidential weapon: George Washington's Colichemarde.
