Editorial Reviews

Seapower shaped the destiny of the United States in the 20th Century. Admiral Dewey's triumph at Manila in 1898 heralded a new era for the U.S. Navy. By 1941, it was one of the most powerful on earth. Featured on this DVD are twelve extraordinary and rare historic films made by and for the U.S. Navy during the critical decades before WWII. Go "cruising with our Navy" in the Atlantic and Pacific, and join the Asiatic Fleet and Yangtze Patrol near Shanghai. See original newsreels of the fight against the U-boat menace in WWI, the development of the first aircraft carriers, and the use of zeppelins by the Navy. Witness the attack against the gunboat USS Panay that nearly provoked war four years before Pearl Harbor, and see the great battleship fleet in all its glory before the disaster at Pearl Harbor. Some of the vessels seen on this DVD include the battleships USS Arizona, USS Nevada, USS Pennsylvania, USS West Virginia, USS Tennessee, USS Oklahoma, USS Maryland, USS Utah, USS New York, USS Texas, USS Wyoming, USS Florida, USS Delaware, USS North Dakota and USS Arkansas, the cruisers USS Augusta, USS San Francisco, USS Quincy, the aircraft carriers USS Langley, USS Lexington, USS Saratoga, USS Ranger, USS Enterprise, USS Hornet and USS Yorktown, along with many other ships including destroyers and auxiliaries. Digitally remastered and restored from original 16mm prints, many of the films on this DVD have never been available to the public. Please note, because of their age and rarity, image and sound quality can vary. Some of the films on the DVD are silent films which have historic music soundtracks and intertitles.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This one is a stinker!! The cover of the DVD box has the best picture of battleships that you will see in the whole thing. I was looking for footage of the pre-war battleline showing the capital units of the US Navy at the height of their power. Unfortunately, there is precious little actual footage of the battleships from the 1920's or 1930's. NOT for the battleship enthusiast !!
