1stLt Alexander Bonnyman (2/8 Marines) Battle of Tarawa, WWII 20-23NOV1943
20-23NOV1943:  Serving as an executive officer for a shore party during the assault on Tarawa, 1stLT Alexander Bonnyman found his fellow Marines pinned down by heavy Japanese fire on the beaches.  Despite the volume of fire, Bonnyman traversed the open beaches to acquire flame throwers and demo equipment, organize his men, and lead attacks into the Japanese positions. By the third day of the attack, Bonnyman and his fellow Marines were held up by a strongly fortified bunker holding an estimated 150 Japanese fighters.  This strong point was inflicting heavy casualties on the Marines and had to be destroyed.  1stLt Bonnyman led multiple attacks to try to overrun the position, returning only to replenish his ammunition.  Finally reaching the structure, Bonnyman placed explosive charges at two entrances as well as the roof.   This act flushed out nearly 100 enemy fighters that were engaged by nearby Marines.  Having placed the last charges himself, Bonnyman was right on top of the enemy as they fled.  He held his ground and killed three before falling to a volley of enemy fire.  With this final structure cleared, Bonnyman's fellow Marines were able to finally break the enemy resistance.   For his heroic actions on the beach and clearing the path inland on Tarawa, 1stLt Alexander Bonnyman would be awarded, posthumously, the Medal of Honor.   --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

The Cliff Rangers of Calvados
On June 6th 1944 a band of US Army Rangers undertook one of the second world war’s most daring missions. Ahead of the main D Day landings, under ferocious fire, they had to land on an exposed beach, scale a 100ft cliff before attacking a well armed and heavily defended German force. Against overwhelming numbers their mission was to silence the huge artillery guns that would target the invading Allied Armies that were about to land on D Day. But we can now reveal a secret about this famous operation that was classified for over 60 years This is the true story of 7 of the Rangers who took part in the mission to protect the hundreds of thousands of other troops landing on the Normandy beaches - sadly not all of them would make it through.

Episode 12 (Part 2) - STS-107 (The Columbia Shuttle Disaster)
This is Part 2 of a two-part episode. In the early morning of 1st February 2003, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Mission Control Centre is a hive of activity. The control room is located at the Lyndon B Johnson Space Centre in Texas. The Mission Control Centre is more commonly known by its callsign, so named because of the city it is located in, Houston. While the technology contained within the room has become more sophisticated over the years since the beginning of US spaceflight, the purpose of Mission Control has remained the same, manage the flight of NASA’s spacecraft after launch until landing. This morning, the mission controllers will be overseeing the deorbit, reentry and landing of the Space Shuttle Orbiter, Columbia. It’s latest mission, STS-107 marks the 28th time the aircraft has launched into orbit, having completed a variety of missions throughout its 22 year career. Columbia is the oldest operational orbiter. While the three other orbiters, Atlantis, Discovery and Endeavour have focused on the construction of the new International Space Station in recent years, Columbia has had a different purpose. The 7 astronauts aboard the orbiter have just completed a 16 day scientific mission. Working 24 hours a day in two alternating shifts, the crew have completed 80 experiments with a particular focus on how microgravity affects humans and how they can adapt to the environment of space. At 0815am the deorbit begins.
