    Dead Men Do Tell Tales

    Dead Men Do Tell Tales

    Many families traveling to the sun-drenched ocean town of Long Beach, California in the summer of 1977, would take a day trip and visit the Nu-Pike Amusement Park; picture Coney Island on the West Coast.  With its vintage rides, shows, games and attractions and located on the beautiful breeze-swept beach, Nu-Pike was a favorite amongst locals, as much as it was with out-of-town tourists.  But in the summer of 1977, amongst all of the sun and fun, not everything was what it appeared to be, even with all of the intentional illusions and deceptions. Imagine:  You walk off of the Long Beach Boardwalk and into an amusement parlor.  The operator instructs you to carefully step down into the ride car.  The lighting is so dim, that seeing what is around you, much less where you are stepping is challenging.  You take a seat and the attendant slides the arm-bar down over your lap, with an audible ‘click.’  The car lurches forward and into the brightly colored, black-lit door welcoming you into Nu-Park’s House of Horrors.

    So, sit back, buckle up, and maybe dim the lights just a bit… as we take YOU on a ride through this week’s episode of The Missing Chapter.

    A House Divided featuring Chris Bower

    A House Divided featuring Chris Bower

    It's May 5th, 1945. Adolf Hitler has just committed suicide five days prior.  Chief of Operations Officer Alfred Jodl and Field Marshall Vilhelm Keital will order the unconditional surrender of all German armed forces two days from now. It will be on this day, however, that the strangest battle of World War II will unfold. Under the ashes of Stalingrad, Kursk, Normandy, and the innumerable battlefields of Europe, the vision of the Third Reich has now perished. Millions of German soldiers paid the ultimate price and now millions more are left to defend their own cities, towns, and families. Striving to retain their honor and dignity at all costs, they were forced to battle their own elite fighting force; the Waffen-SS. While Germany’s struggles in World War II have come to an end, another internal conflict has just begun, leaving their House Divided.

    Resurrection Deception

    Resurrection Deception

    In the spring of 1943, mainland Europe lay in the firm grip of Nazi Germany and the Axis Powers.  A year removed from the D-Day invasions of Normandy, Allied intelligence is formulating a plan that involves a lone serviceman - military courier, Major William Martin.  Martin would prove to be the key to deceiving the Germans of the Allied plans to liberate Sicily and alter the tide of the war.  British officials know they have only one shot to implement their plan at deceiving Adolf Hitler and are putting their faith and their resources behind a single soldier...who doesn't actually exist.

    Caught In The Crossfire

    Caught In The Crossfire

    The 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, is touted in the history textbooks as being one of the most influential Presidents in American History.  From the Gettysburg Address to the Emancipation Proclamation to his untimely demise at the hands of John Wilkes Booth, following in Lincoln’s footsteps would be no small task.  The only one of his four sons to live into adulthood, however, would take on the role of carrying out the Lincoln namesake.  How does the son of such a prominent figure leave his mark on society?  By being in a web of coincidences and being caught in the crossfire.

    Alpha & Omega

    Alpha & Omega

    The U.S. Civil War left in its wake some 750,000 dead, the American countryside in ruins, and a nation healing from bitter division.  The stories of the people and families, however, tell the true impact this war had on our great nation.  Maybe none more so than, the story of Wilmer McLean - a merchant and family man from Virginia.  His experience in the Civil War is one of great irony and one that traces the campaign from start...to finish.
