Synopsis

Triple-bill of documentaries examining some of the most important naval battles of the Second World War. 'Great Sea Battles of World War Two' traces the development of the German navy during the 1930s, the initial U-Boat campaigns against Allied shipping, the shift in focus to the Mediterranean as Britain fought against Italy, and the Japanese attack on the American naval base at Pearl Harbour. 'The Battle of Midway' looks at one of the most important naval battles of the war, as the US Navy managed to turn the tide against the Japanese by destroying their carrier groups. 'Atlantic Convoys' looks at the gruelling attritional war between the Royal Navy, the Merchant Navy and the German U-Boats, as Hitler sought to destroy the merchant shipping that Britain was so dependant on. The documentaries include interviews with surviving veterans, expert analysis, and computer graphic recreations.
