Victory At Sea 4pk (1952)
|Considered the most influential documentary in television history, VICTORY AT SEA, in the words of Harper’s Weekly, "created a new art form." The 26 half-hour episodes were culled from over 13,000 hours of footage shot by the U.S., British, German and Japanese navies during World War II. Narrated by Leonard Graves and set to a score by Richard Rodgers, this program offered a remarkable look at the realities of naval warfare and the extraordinary challenges faced by the Allies. From U-boat "Wolfpacks" to the epic battles at Iwo Jima and Okinawa, every major naval engagement of World War II is captured in some of the most riveting combat footage ever shot. Now, the complete landmark series is available on DVD for the first time. And, to celebrate this 50th anniversary release, television legend Peter Graves (Mission Impossible) enriches the viewing experience by framing each classic episode of this Emmy® and Peabody® award-winning series against the World War II cultural and political landscape. From U-boat "Wolfpacks" to the epic battles at Iwo Jima and Okinawa, every major naval engagement of World War II is captured in some of the most riveting combat footage ever shot.|

Customer Reviews of Victory At Sea 4pk
Great piece of history1/11/2009
My husband has wanted this set for a long time and I was especially pleased with the great price, much better than other sites. The dialog is overly dramatic for my taste, but the footage is awesome. Hubby got this for Christmas and watched the whole thing before New Year's Day.
