Soviet Storm: WW2 In The East

The Secret War
Season 1 Episode 15 The History Channel May 16, 2017

Stalin's USSR was a nation obsessed with secrecy and highly experienced in the skills of espionage. But despite establishing networks of agents across Europe and the far east in the 1930s, the Soviets were still caught off-guard by Hitler's invasion in 1941. But thereafter, the GRU (army intelligence) and NKVD (KGB forerunner) went on to score some amazing intelligence coups in Tokyo, Washington, and even from the heart of Berlin.

In 1000 AD, the Vikings made it to North America, establishing a base camp in Newfoundland at a site called L'Anse aux Meadows. But could they have made it further south to what is now the United States to build a permanent settlement called Vinland, which has been documented in legend, but has never been found? Forensic Geologist Scott Wolter thinks so. Now, he's hot on the trail of never before seen evidence and geologic clues that could prove it - including a message discovered off the coast of a forbidden island in Massachusetts that may have been left by famous Viking voyager Leif Ericson himself.

What might Washington DC have in common with ancient sites like Stonehenge? It is thought by some to be constructed using an ancient unit of measurement called the megalithic yard. Thought to be used by some of the greatest civilisations of all time, this antiquated unite of measure could be the key to understanding the hidden meaning behind Washington's streets and structures. Scott Wolter investigates whether its use in the design plans of Washington created a sanctuary for people practising goddess worship; people, like George Washington himself.
