Lost Gold of World War II Full Episode Guide

  • A man warns Peter of the risks of searching for Yamashita's treasure, and a connection to the CIA, as the team moves mountains to clear the last obstacles and finds a secret tunnel directly into the mountain.

  • The team zeroes in on a tunnel that may be part of the treasure labyrinth. Bingo learns that part of dictator Ferdinand Marcos' fortune may have been stolen from Yamashita's Treasure and uncovers a possible link to a CIA conspiracy.

  • The team attempts to prove if a tunnel exists behind a unique formation of rocks they believe is a secret backdoor entrance into the mountain. Battling a typhoon and possible Nazi concrete, the team ultimately finds proof of a void 40-feet below.

  • Unable to find a tunnel at the waterfall, the team is guided by an animal marker to a boulder carved in the shape of a turtle. Following the direction of the turtle head, the team discovers a Golden Lily symbol indicating a secret backdoor entrance.

  • The team triggers a possible water trap in the cave and is forced to stop digging. Martin Flagg believes the Story Rock indicates a tunnel behind a waterfall and the team brings in a Navy diver to explore the plunge pools and search for an entrance.

  • After discovering a bomb marker, the team brings in an explosives expert to search a cave that may have been a headquarters of Gen. Yamashita during the war; a potential booby trap and the first hint of treasure.

  • Digging continues at Breach-6, but when the team unearths a possible water trap the excavation is put on hold; the team conducts a LiDAR scan that reveals a cave, perhaps used by Japanese soldiers during the war.

  • A team of Americans explores a mountain in the Philippines to search for a treasure rumored to have been buried by Gen. Tomoyuki Yamashita in the closing months of World War II.
