At the height of the Second World War, a young Navy Lieutenant stood at the helm of a U.S. patrol boat and in one ill-starred night made his mark in the annals of history. That young man later became on of the most popular Presidents of the US—John Fitzgerald Kennedy. National Geographic reveals the true story behind the legend—a more complex, more intriguing tale than we were ever led to believe. Famed ocean explorer Dr. Robert Ballard will travel to the Solomon Islands to find the sunken wreck of Kennedy's boat, the PT-109. Through eyewitness accounts of survivors, local islanders and other PT crews on patrol that night, along with powerful footage from the war in the Pacific, we retell the remarkable story of JFK's heroic struggle to rally his crew and get them safely to shore and explore the controversies that have swirled around the boat's sinking.

The American Civil War has been called the first modern war. Railroads, the telegraph, steamships, and mass-produced weapons were extensively employed. The practice of total war, developed by Sherman in Georgia, and of trench warfare around Petersburg foreshadowed World War I in Europe. The chronology of the war is a well-told tale. Less well known are the strikingly varied changes in America resulting from the war, including expanded roles for women as factory workers, teachers, nurses, and as some of the war’s most successful spies.
