War Stories was a military history program on the Fox News Channel. Hosted by Oliver North, of Iran–Contra affair fame, the program covered a number of different stories relating to war and national defense, featuring individuals who were directly involved with the topic covered in the episode.
Each episode focused on one of three areas:
- A particular noteworthy individual, such as George Patton or Douglas MacArthur
- A particular battle, such as the Battle of Hamburger Hill
- A segment devoted to a specific topic, such as the use of animals in the military or the Huey
The episodes were often based on current events; the episode which aired August 6, 2006 featured the history of Fidel Castro's rise to power (in light of Castro's temporary relinquishment of power) while the prior week's episode centered on Hezbollah.
North ends the episode with the tagline, "his/hers/theirs is a war story, that deserves to be told".
Episodes from the series have been individually released on DVD.
