Featured on this DVD are five rare U.S. Navy films made in the WWII era - including a rare full COLOR film - showcasing the capabilities that led to America's triumph in the Pacific war.
Watch a rare, silent newsreel of the recovery of the USS Squalus and its crew after a diving accident left it stuck at the bottom of the sea. See recruits train for action in the pre-war silent service, and watch full color WWII combat footage as U.S. fleet boats enter Japanese home waters, operating with impunity and sinking everything in sight.
Also featured is a film showing one of the great triumphs of the anti-submarine war in the Atlantic: the capture of the Nazi U-boat U-505 at sea.
The DVD concludes with a showcase of post-war developments including the launch of the nuclear Nautilus.
Digitally remastered and restored from original 16mm prints, many of these films have never been available to the public. Some have only recently been declassified. Please note, due to their age and rarity, image and sound quality can vary.
All films are black and white and COLOR. Running time: 90 minutes.
IMPORTANT: This DVD is presented in the DVD-R format. It may not be compatible with older DVD players. Please check your DVD player's manual for more information.
