Military Channel is continuing their streak of providing engaging and exciting programming with the debut of their all-new original series Edge of War that examines the extraordinary stakes that surrounded history’s greatest conflicts. The six-episode first season kicks off Tuesday, April 3 at 10 PM on Military Channel.
Through the course of the series, we’ll revisit the string of events that paved the way for the world’s most critical declarations of war, examining each pivotal decision’s unfurling with minute-by-minute storytelling. From World War II to Korea, Argentina, and the Middle East, we’ll see how leaders brought their countries to the very edge as we learn their motivations in risking it all.
Former NATO Commander and retired U.S. Army General Wesley K. Clark not only hosts the show, but transports viewers into the minds, war rooms, and military operations that shaped the world as we know it through the help of his expert commentary.
In the premiere episode, we’ll gain insight into Hitler’s False Flag. Hungry for territory, Adolf Hitler needed to convince the world he was justified in attacking Poland. SS leaders trained and equipped recruits to act as Polish soldiers, then attacked German facilities along the German-Polish border. Making the world believe Poland was the aggressor was among the first ‘false flag’ operations in history and set into motion the events that lit the world on fire in World War 2.
Check out this two-minute clip that will show you what you’re in store for with the series and the premiere:
