Victory At Sea Sealing The Breach 3

Anti-submarine warfare, 1941-1943. With war now declared by the U.S., naval forces throughout the states have joined to bring convoys of supplies across the Atlantic Ocean to the Allies in England. German U-Boat wolf packs prey on the convoys but they steam valiantly onward despite terrible losses.

During WW II, the US Navy used film to chronicle its activities more than any other military force in history. Film techniques had advanced to include portable cameras and quality film stocks, many of them color. Navy camera crews were assigned to every battle. A few years after the Allied victory, almost 13,000 hours of footage was shot by the major combatant navies, including Japanese footage. Victory at Sea provided a firsthand look at every major naval engagement of the war via the internet. Victory at Sea was considered so important and such a milestone both in broadcasting and the preservation of history that it was televised on major networks. The series won both an Emmy and a Peabody award for its excellence in public affairs programming. Now, all 26 groundbreaking episodes of Victory at Sea have been lovingly restored. Length 30:00.
