WAR COMES TO THE PHILIPPINES (PT 2): MACARTHUR RETURNS

THE HIDDEN NAZI 1001 INTERVIEWS AUTHOR DAN REUTER

The Hidden Nazi-He should have been hung at the war trials, but until now they all thought he was dead. His name was General Hans Kammler. He was among the worst of the Nazis. He was responsible for the construction of Hitler's concentration camps. He personally altered the design of Auschwitz to increase crowding,insuring that epidemic diseases would compliment the work of the gas chambers. So pleased was Hitler with his work that he placed him in charge of his nuclear and rocket programs. He was pronounced dead after the war-but he was actually in American custody after the war because the US wanted Germany's rocket and nuclear secrets. This is the untold story of America's deal with the devil and the dogged determination of three men to uncover proof of Kammler's deal with American intelligence to save his own skin. 1001 Host Jon Hagadorn interviews author Dean Reuter and gets the untold story that's more shocking than fiction.

WAR COMES TO THE PHILIPPINES: (PT 1) : THE BATTLING BASTARDS OF BATAAN

The day after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, destroying most of the American Pacific Fleet, they attacked the US Air Bases in the Philippines. Despite being warned 9 hours ahead of time, all our planes were on the ground when Japanese bombers and fighter planes appeared there,and in one hour the United States had lost its air power in Asia. The Japanese could now invade MacArthur's forces in the Philippines without fear of reprisal from the air,and his 78,000 men were placed in a losing battle against superior forces when the invasion came.. They fought bravely until their strength wore out- 90 days of continuous fighting, malaria, dehydration,and starvation finally did the trick. Then their commander surrendered them to the Japanese, who imprisoned them,and when the US finally returned 3 years later, only 500 men remained. The largest American military cemetery in the world outside of the US resides in Manila, where 78,000 American soldiers gave up their lives. Next week: The ...

WE'RE NEVER ALONE (#UFO) (#NASA)

A BEST OF 1001 SPECIAL PRESENTATION There was a two minute transmission silence on July 21st, 1969, just before Neil Armstrong stepped off the Lunar Mudule onto the surface of the moon. A HAM radio operator later claimed he had been able to capture what really transpired during those two minutes, when Armstrong reported the presence of two alien craft positioned on the top rim of a crater nearby, watching their every move. In this episode we seek insight from the men who have explored the far reaches of space in order to answer the question "Do aliens and alien craft exist" and has there been a wholesale cover-up of information? We will leave it up to you to decide.

THE LINCOLN CONSPIRACY (PART ONE)

THE BATTLE OF LOS ANGELES 1942

In the weeks that followed the invasion and subsequent destruction of a large swath of the US Navy at Pearl Harbor in December of 1941, the western coastal states in the US were understandably suffering a case of nerves, not knowing if Japan was going to strike mainland US.Sightings were reported, and coastal batteries were placed on alert. A Japanese sub actually strafed a fuel depot at Elwood on the California coast, and the next evening something reported to be either a fleet of planes or balloons was spotted, and antiaircraft guns all up and down the coast of California started firing. For a tense few hours, most people thought that Los Angeles was under attack. This is the story.

THE BATTLE OF LOS ANGELES 1942

YAMASHITA'S GOLD

When the Japanese nation began their war in Asia and the Pacific in 1937, they also began the systematic looting of every country they conquered- a looting which lasted through 1944, and which collected what some researchers believe was the largest sum of stolen property ever amassed in the history of man. Everything from money to gold and silver to precious jewels to religious artifacts was taken from national treasuries, museums, banks, personal collections, and more, and shipped to a collection point in Singapore- then secreted to hiding places for later recovery. When Japanese merchant ships loaded with stolen treasure began to be sunk by allied planes and submarines- Japan needed a safer destination- and General Yamashita in the Phillipines offered a solution. Billions of dollars worth of gold bars and priceless artifacts were sent to him to hide in caverns and tunnels, and usually the prisoners who helped to dig the tunnels and pits and transport the bullion were killed. But l...
