Battlefield Recovery follows the work of a team dedicated to saving the history of World War Two’s Eastern Front before it’s lost forever. Over the course of four explosive episodes, the recovery team tracks down, unearths and preserves hundreds of World War Two artefacts and uncovers the remains of German and Soviet soldiers, in the process throwing new light on some of the bloodiest battles the world has known and enabling the fallen to be buried with due honour.
S01:E01 - Season 1, Episode 1
In its mission to save the history of World War Two’s Eastern Front before it’s lost forever, the battlefield recovery team heads to Latvia. They’re hunting for a mysterious German bunker, reported to have been abandoned at the end of the war and which could contain historic items to preserve and hand over to local museums.
S01:E02 - Season 1, Episode 2
In its ongoing mission to recover buried stories from some of the bloodiest battlefields the world has known, the team heads to western Latvia, to unearth what really happened when Hitler’s crack SS Nordland division faced off against Stalin’s Red Army in 1944.
S01:E03 - Season 1, Episode 3
To throw new light on one of the world’s bloodiest conflicts, the Battlefield Recovery team heads to western Poland to track German soldiers fleeing the advance of the Red Army in 1945. After trench lines in the fortress city of Poznan yield no finds, the team travels to a village called Sarbka, where locals believe dead German soldiers were dumped in a pit outside the local cemetery. The team soon uncovers bodies but not, it seems, just soldiers and the mystery deepens. A ‘Frauenwerk’ badge indicates that one body was a German woman. They discover a bullet hole in her temple and an ugly exit wound at the back of her skull, suggesting an execution rather a death in action.
S01:E04 - Season 1, Episode 4
Continuing its mission to save the history of World War Two’s Eastern Front before it’s lost forever, the team heads to the Courland Peninsula in Latvia and a front line trench system, which Soviet military reports reveal to have been the scene of fierce fighting in January 1945. Tracing the trench line, the team faces an early setback when they unearth a live high explosive shell, which has to be detonated by the army bomb disposal squad.
