Watch Battlefield Detectives
- 4 Seasons
"Battlefield Detectives" is a documentary television show about famous battles. The show focused on the battlefield rather than the actual battle. Using modern science the show told a story on how the battles were won or lost. Some of the battles on the show were Custer at Little Bighorn, Civil War: Battle of Antietam, Battle of the Bulge, and the Siege of Alesia. The show approaches the topic with a new fresh point of view, illustrating a story from the past using modern science. The show premiered on the History channel from 2003-2006. The show aired 32 episodes over four seasons. The show was canceled in 2006 during the fourth season after two episodes. In 2003 "Battlefield Detectives" was also made into a 256 page book which was illustrated by David Wason. The History Channel still plays re-runs of the show from time to time.
