Victory at Sea
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
The series premiered on the last Sunday of October 1952, and subsequent episodes played each Sunday afternoon through May 1953. Each half-hour installment dealt with some aspect of World War II naval warfare and highlighted each of the sea war's major campaigns. That drama was enhanced by the program's sententious voice-over narration and by Richard Rogers's stirring musical score.

As far as I can see it is complete and each episode is 26 minutes long.
Although there are other versions of the "Victory at Sea" series available on DVD, I like this one the best because of the very reasonable price. Some of the other versions cost upwards of $50. The only drawback to this set is that the picture quality isn't as good as it possibly could have been. However, this is a minor point. Each episode runs approximately 26 minutes, and each is loaded with actual footage derived from over 13,000 hours of actual film shooting.
I give this fine version my highest recommendation. You'll get to re-live the series just as it was when it was on television. The rolling waves are still there, and the large "V" still appears at the end of each episode. Watch this legendary series and experience how the second world war was fought on the high seas.
