Battles BC Full Episode Guide

  • A recollection of the Persian's defeat at the hands of the Greeks at The Battle of Marathon in 490 B.C.

  • What begins as a dispute over a buffer zone escalates quickly into a struggle for regional dominance as two of the great Empires of the Ancient world trade blows. The Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses is baited into overextending his armies, believing the first fighting force to arrive at the contested city of Kadesh will be victorious. But Ramses has been deceived... the Hittite Army lies in wait. They strike when he is at his weakest, and his troops exhausted. Ramses suffers desertion and heavy losses. His weakened force is surrounded on three sides. Amazingly, the pure fighting ability of the Egyptian soldiers is enough to enable them to battle their way out of their corner and escape.

  • The great Roman Commander Julius Caesar in 52BC was butchering his way into Gaul. The Romans completed their Mediterranean dominance due to their leader, Caesar's iron will, defeating the Gauls in the final battle of the Gallic Wars. It is siege upon siege, but Caesar knows the Romans, although fewer in numbers, are better supplied.

  • Joshua leads the Israelites in the biblical Battle of Jericho as they seized the walled city.

  • A profile of Israel's King David, spotlighting his epic battle against the Philistines and his rise to the throne. Also includes David's adulterous relationship with Bathsheba, and his orchestration for the death of her husband.

  • It's the 3rd century B.C. in Rome during the Second Punic War, and Hannibal is making his daring attack.
