For the first time in history, National Geographic and a group of scientists search the ocean floor for a series of shipwrecks many Americans never heard about. Everyone knows that on December 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. But what most don’t know is just days later, Hitler sent his own force to devastate the East Coast. On December 19, the German Naval War Staff sent three U-boats to American waters. It was an assault so deadly, it was covered up by the U.S. government.

It is said that money makes the world go round. But when it comes to cash, gold, diamonds or even bits of digital data, without the engines that power the world’s financial systems, the money machine would grind to a halt. National Geographic Channel and host Jake Ward of Popular Science magazine take you inside the vaults of some of the world’s largest and most secretive cash stashes. For more than 80 years, armored vehicles have navigated Manhattan’s narrow streets carrying millions and sometimes billions in gold deposits in and out of the central bank of the United States… the Federal Reserve Bank. Manhattan’s branch, one of 12 that make up the Federal Reserve System, is trusted to guard almost one-quarter of the world’s entire gold supply.
