Warriors goes inside the culture of the most famous warriors of all time to explore their weaponry, tactics, training and, ultimately, their psyche. Every episode tells the dramatic story of one of the world’s iconic warrior groups– Vikings, Spartans, Barbarians, Samurai–including the rituals, technology and strategy that made them so mighty. Warriors is hosted by Terry Schappert, a Green Beret and 17-year veteran currently serving in the US Special Forces. He delves deep into the mindset of a warrior, revealing what made these individuals rise above others to lead, to fight and sometimes to die. Each Warriors episode also explores a climactic battle that showcases the warrior’s strengths, weaknesses and life-and-death struggle.

From Zulus to English Knights to Hawaiians, Terry is fully immersed in the warrior culture–from the weapons used to the pre-battle rituals, to the initiations, to battlefield strategy and tactics. When delving deep into the Viking culture, he experiences first hand the fighting techniques and tests the weapons of the warriors that some call “the Hells Angels” of the Middle Ages. In the Samurai episode, Terry learns the secrets and traditions of the elite and mysterious warriors who for centuries ruled Japan. In English Knights, he dons the armor, uses the weapons and lives the code of chivalry.

In every episode of Warriors, Terry talks to experts on each of the warrior cultures, moves beyond the stereotypes and gains new insights about who these men really were. Walking in the footsteps of history’s greatest Warriors proves to be a gut-wrenching experience, but it’s all part of Terry’s amazing journey to discover the heart of a warrior.

During the first millennium, while Europe was deep in the Dark Ages, the Maya civilization flourished, with the construction of vast cities and great achievements in art, architecture, astronomy and written language. The Maya also had a warrior culture, which evolved over time. Initially, the Maya fought in small groups for the purpose of capturing prisoners to be used as human sacrifices to the gods. The Maya’s preferred form of sacrifice was to decapitate their victims. Later, the purpose of Maya warfare shifted to conquest, with one city-state fighting another for territory and power.

Dubbed the “Hell’s Angels of the Middle Ages,” the Vikings were seafaring warriors who emerged in eighth century Scandinavia and over the next 300 years pillaged and plundered their way through parts of Europe and North America. At the beginning of this era, there was no single Viking kingdom, but instead a collection of small, warring chiefdoms whose male citizens mastered their naval combat skills by fighting each other. Boats were so valuable to the Vikings that they sought to capture, rather than destroy, enemy vessels.

Germany, 9 AD. The Romans, with the greatest army in the world, are annihilated by Germanic tribes at the Battle of Teutoburg Forest. How did this situation arise.

England v. France, 1415. Outnumbered English knights and archers, led by King Henry V, slaughter French knights at Agincourt. We explore this historic moment of Anglo-French relations.

Japan, 1612. Legendary samurai Musashi meets archrival Kojiro in a climactic duel. What does it take to be a warrior on this scale? We travel the globe alongside modern-day warrior SFC Terry Schappert and go inside the culture of some of the most famous warriors of all time to explore their weaponry, tactics and, ultimately, their psyche.

The 18th century. An isolated outpost in the Pacific. Warriors using brutal shark tooth weapons, human sacrifice and bone-breaking hand-to-hand combat are engaged in inter-island warfare. One chief looks to unite the islands and establish peace. But to do that, he’ll need to become one of the greatest military minds of his time.

Join Terry Schappert as he delves into the secret culture of the Hawaiian warrior and studies the tactics of King Kamehameha the Great.

Green Beret Terry Schappert reveals the origin of his own American warrior culture - the U.S. Special Forces.

The Alamo Scouts were an elite reconnaissance unit that operated behind enemy lines during World War II. Terry not only tests their weapons, like the Thompson submachine gun and M1 Garand, but also demonstrates their guerilla tactics. These unconventional fighting skills led to a daring POW rescue that made the Alamo Scouts legendary.
