Tonight on the History Channel: http://www.history.com/shows.do?action=detail&episodeId=186839
"This special examines the history behind the recent war in Lebanon and the potential for this regional crisis to erupt into a global conflict. We analyze how Hezbollah's alliances with Syria, Iran, and other countries, along with Israel's close ties to the United States, could help propel what began as a border skirmish into World War III."
I saw this Saturday night, and thought it was very good. It covers the Russian war in Afghanistan through the latest conflict between Hezbollah & Israel.
I recommend it.
