Product Description

Product Description

This fascinating series from HISTORY™ will explore the world of the U.S. Navy Submariner in World War II. We'll dive deep to periscope depth in the Pacific and hunt a convoy of Japanese freighters, surface in the Atlantic and fire upon a stricken German U-Boat, sneak into Tokyo Bay and wreck havoc upon the Japanese Fleet and learn about the men who lived and hunted under the sea, while discussing the different submarines and their use in war. Plus we'll explore the tactics used to destroy the enemy and how submarines contributed to the final defeat of Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany.

Take a journey beneath the waves and discover the incredible story behind The Submarines of World War II: The Silent Service.

• Over six hours of footage across four discs tell the fascinating stories of the submarines of World War II.

These DVDs are well worth watching,well made and you get a lot for your money,while the second world war is well covered Japanese boats,U boats,allied boats etc,good narration with good footage makes them something you will watch more than once.Not in the title but also covered is the cold war,very good footage of modern boats including soviet boats (very sharp)modern German u boats,the jump to Nuclear propulsion,Cuban missile crisis,all of this and a lot of very interesting interviews make this set well above average when it comes to the Submarine genre,they are American made documentaries so the U.S.N.is predominate,highly recommended.

The set does what it promises to do -- provide a good overall coverage of the use of submarines in World War II. (There is also a good deal of material on the structure and function of modern submarines, mostly American.) Some more specialized subjects are given attention too -- the evolution of the submarine and the torpedo, the war-time exploits of some especially adventurous submarine skippers, and so forth. It's informative and enjoyable, if you're interested in the subject at all.

Bought these for my Dad for Christmas from the Grandchildren. Wow! He loves these DVD's and spends far too long (according to my Mum) watching them whenever he gets a chance. Dad has said they are very informative with some great images of the submarines he loves so much. Definitely recommend.
