Episode Summary

EDIT
Army Mega Moves
AIRED:
War inspires ingenuity... some of the greatest battles have been won or lost based on the work of Mega Movers. In 218 B.C. the Mega Movers' tool was 37 elephants that transported men and cargo across the Alps, ensuring victory for Hannibal at the Battle of Trebbia. In 304 B.C. the famous 160-ton Helepolis siege tower, which required 3,400 men working in relays to move it, was used for the Siege of Rhodes. And in 1944, at D-Day, the battle turned on the work of military Mega Movers who built two massive harbors in just two weeks. It's not only on the battlefield where the military has earned their Mega Mover stripes but also during times of crisis. October 8, 2005 - Pakistan is hit by a major earthquake. With the death-toll climbing, aid is desperately needed to prevent thousands more from dying. In one of the fastest mobilizations of Army helicopters ever used for relief, four CH-47 choppers were loaded into two mammoth C-5 Galaxy cargo planes and flown from Hawaii to Pakistan, delivering life-saving supplies to thousands of refugees.moreless
