Twenty-six episode series about naval combat during World War Two. Famous for its music score, eloquent narration and combat footage.
The Allies are victorious in New Guinea as they repel the Japanese. They thus bring the fight through a series of “island-hopping” offensives using a new ship – the slow but vital LST. The price paid is great on both sides, but as Japanese casualties increase in their never-ending losing battle against the Allied onslaught, their homeland only hears news of their victory being broadcast by radio. Japan’s people are shown suffering in defeat through a scene of a massive funeral, providing a balance of how universal grief truly is.
