Former JUGGERNAUT Vocalist To Host 'Battle Rats: Iwo Jima'

Former JUGGERNAUT vocalist Harlan Glenn will host "Battle Rats: Iwo Jima", which premieres Sunday, November 22 at 10:00 p.m. and repeats at 1:00 a.m. the following day on the Military Channel. A trailer for the show can be viewed below.

Glenn, an expert on military history, is a published author of several books, including 1998's "For King and Country" and 2009's "782 Gear", and has amassed numerous research, segment producer, and co-directing credits working for the History and Discovery channels. In addition to hosting duties, Glenn wrote, directed and produced "Battle Rats: Iwo Jima".

"Military history has been a lifelong passion of mine. Getting to host my own concept series is my dream job," states Glenn who grew up as an Army brat on different U.S. bases all around the world. "It's been 17 years of paying my dues in the television and film industry and I'm getting an incredible opportunity to take the world by storm! It was a lot of hard work and long hours getting this particular show together and off the ground but I hope military buffs and history enthusiasts get as much of a kick out of watching it as I've had making it. There are plans for further installments if things go accordingly. I already have things mapped out in my head on what to tackle next."

Harlan Glenn left JUGGERNAUT after the release of their 1986 Metal Blade debut album, "Baptism Under Fire", which also featured noted drummer Bobby Jarzombek (HALFORD, RIOT), and went on to front several California-based bands before segueing into acting and eventually behind-the-scenes work.
