Between September 1939 and May 1945, thousands of fighter planes, bombers, boats, and tanks disappeared during operations over France, Germany, North Africa, Russia and in the Pacific. Some crashed in deserts and fields, others at sea or into marshes. The ships sank with their cargo and sailors. The tanks got stuck in bogs or were buried to fill in shell-holes. They all remained wherever they went down until now… and they have stories to tell. This series investigates the past. We travel to all these hidden wrecks, we bring them back to the surface, and we tell what happened during the tragic day. With a mix of archives, subtle re-enactments, VFX and expert interviews, the epic stories of these battle machines offer us a broader view of the Second World War.
