    1-Design For War - Battle of the Atlantic, 1939-1941

    Volume #1 starts with the outbreak of war as the German blitzkrieg invades Poland in September of 1939. Soon afterward, Germany conquers Belgium, Holland and France. Great Britain is forced from the European continent and then is attacked during the Battle of Britain. England eventually gets the help of the U.S. and the Americans help to supply the British Isles. Germany brings war into the Atlantic using their submarines to sink ship after ship. The Germans celebrate victory after victory for now. It will not be long however as the Americans get ready for war and will join the allies in late 1941.

    2-The Pacific Boils Over - Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941

    Hawaii is peaceful during most of 1941, but the Japanese are preparing to change all of that in this episode. Japan has been preparing for war for years as they conquered most of China. They plan on attacking the United States next and expand their empire all the south to Australia. Admiral Yamamoto designs a plan to attack Pearl Harbor. The US Navy Department breaks the secret code, but it is too late as the Japs attack on December 7, 1941. There are over 2,400 Americans killed and another 1,200 wounded. Japan only loses 64 sailors and pilots. In the aftermath, the United States Navy undertook the largest salvage operation of all time and rebuilt the navy stationed at Pearl Harbor to eventually help defeat the Japanese empire.

    3-SEALING THE BREACH Anti - Submarine Warfare, 1941-1943

    After F.D.R. declared war on the Axis powers, America was already determined to help supply England in their battle against the Nazis. The U.S. Navy and Merchant Marines would help in bringing over tons and tons of continuous supplies across the Atlantic Ocean. But to do so means also facing the possibility of being torpedoed by a German U-Boat. The Battle of the Atlantic raged on for over 4 years as the Allies plan convoy after convoy to help defeat the Axis powers in Europe. The Germans fought furiously, but in the end they too would meet their doom. This episode focuses on the convoys in their hopes of helping the cause to win victory in the Battle of the Atlantic.

    4-MIDWAY IS EAST - Japanese Victories & The Midway Battle

    Midway Is East is about how Japan attempted to force the United States out of the war early. Japan continued it's expansion as Japan forced the surrenders of Hong Kong, the Philippines and Singapore in their quest to control the entire Pacific Ocean region. In March of 1942, the Americans broke the Japanese code and then halted the Japanese invasion of Australia at the Battle of the Coral Sea.Then all changed during the Battle of Midway. The Japanese strike force attempted a landing on the island of Midway. The Americans were ready and Admiral Spruance's carrier forced attacked the Japanese fleet and eventually sunk all four Japanese carriers, while losing only the Lexington. The entire war with Japan turned forever in the Americans favor at Midway and never again were the Japanese on the offensive again.

    5-Mediterranean Mosaic - Gilbraltar, Allied & Enemy Fleets, Malta

    In this episode, Hitler and Mussolini go over strategies in defeating the Allies in the Mediterranean Sea. The Italian Navy builds itself up as the French and British Navies try to protect all the Allied ships. The British must maintain the Rock of Gibraltar to help ensure the safe passage of all Allied shipping in and out of the Mediterranean. The Royal Navy must also prevent the German Navy passage into the Sea including U-Boats. But perhaps, the most important bastion is the island of Malta, which the British must protect at all costs. The Maltese endure over 1,700 air raids by the Luftwaffe and with the help of the Royal Air Force help keep the Mediterranean free from the Axis powers and eventually triumph in this battle for freedom. Malta became just another step towards Allied victory during World War II.

    6-GUADALCANAL - Guadalcanal

    As the United States prepares for war in the Pacific against the empire of Japan, the U.S. Navy organizes convoys full of supplies and Marines, all to be sent to New Zealand. After the U.S. Navy's successes in both the Coral Sea and at Midway a search plane takes a photo of an airfield being built by the Japanese on the island of Guadalcanal. Admiral Nimitz decides to land the Marines there in their first real action of the war. The battle will last months as many Americans lose their lives to both war and disease. But in the end, it is the Americans who prevail and use the airfield, now called Henderson Field to wreck havoc on the Japanese soldiers and sailors. The United States stops Japan dead in it's tracks and thwarts any hopes of a Japanese invasion of Australia. Now it's the Americans who will go on the offensive.

    7-RINGS AROUND RABAUL - Struggle for the Solomon Islands

    Japan fortifies the island of Rabaul in the Solomon Islands. They use this base to attack Allied shipping, airfields, ports and anything else that comes in their paths. The Americans counter by taking Guadalcanal first and then Googanville. The 3rd Marines land there and take control in 5 weeks of hard fighting. Then the Army engineers only take 5 days to build another airfield to help in cutting off the Japanese on Rabaul. The allies continue this practice as Rabaul is completely cutoff and ultimately destroyed. Just another notch in the chain of advancement towards Tokyo.

    8-MARE NOSTRUM, Mediterranean Command - 1940-1942

    Mare Norsrum means "Our Sea" in Latin. The story of this episode is how the Axis powers tried to take control of Greece, the Mediterranean, North Africa and the Suez Canal. They failed on the last three. Hitler pressured the Italian Navy to take more initiative and attack the Royal Navy of Great Britain. Without any aircraft carriers, the Italians did not fare well, so control of the Mediterranean remained with the Allies. In North Africa, the German Afrika Corps led by Irwin Rommel defeated the British at Tuburk, but ultimately failed on the whole thanks to the navies of the United States and Great Britain for keeping the supply lines open. In the end, Rommel was forced out of Africa all together. The Suez Canal remained always in Allied control.

    9-SEA AND SAND, Invasion of North Africa - 1942-1943

    Sea And Sand focuses on the Allied invasions of Africa. With the United States first entering the war against the Japanese, the U.S. is also now at war with Germany. First, both America and Great Britain build large convoys of troop transports to land in Casablanca and fight the Vichy French into quick submission. Then the Allies also land another amphibious attack in Algiers. The Allies use both landings to pinch Rommel on both sides using General Montgomery and the British forces on one and with Patton and the American army on the other. The Germans are eventually forced to surrender over 200,000 troops to the Allies with ultimate defeat from the continent of Africa.

    10-BENEATH THE SOUTHERN CROSS - War in the South Atlantic

    The Battle of the South Atlantic is the main theme of this show. The German pocket battleship Graf Spree starts it out by sinking thousands of tons of merchant ships, both neutral and of ally descent until the the three British cruisers led by Devonshire forced the battleship into port at Uruguay. The Graf Spree decided to escape by scuttling itself. The German raider Atlantis also wrecked havoc in the southern seas, but met a different death as it was simply blasted out of existence. Brazil joined in the side of the allies and together with the United States formed convoys to help supply the Allies efforts in Africa to defeat the Axis. With control of the South Atlantic, Allied shipping almost always came made it through in the fight for victory.

    11-MAGNETIC NORTH - War from Murmansk to Alaska

    The Germans and Japanese both try to attack the Allies in the farthest reaches of the Northern Hemisphere. First, the Germans attempt to destroy the convoys which are headed to Murmansk. The Germans are desperate to stop the supplies from reaching Russia. As the convoys enter the North Sea, the Luftwaffe is there to meet them with plenty of bombs. Then the German Navy hides in the fiordes to come out and surprise the convoys and still more bombings on the ships that still survive for the final leg into Russia. In the second part of the video, the Japanese surprise the Americans with the invasion and capture of Attu. But forces from Dutch Harbor reorganize and an amphibious raid lands on the tiny island as the Marines eventually eliminate the Japanese invaders.

    12-THE CONQUEST OF MICRONESIA - Carrier Warfare -- Gilberts and Marshalls

    After American victories at Midway and Guadalcanal, the carrier fleets took some R&R back in Hawaii. After refueling and completing some repairs, the fleets were sent back out to oust the Japanese in the Gilbert's and the Marshall's. The carrier fleets headed by Admiral Spruance had one simple order. Search and destroy the enemy. Using air superiority, the fighting marines and a barrage from the many US battleships, cruisers and destroyers, this mission was completed. And thus, another step towards Tokyo was taken. The loss is great, but the Americans will prevail and bring total destruction to the Japanese Empire.

    13-MELANESIAN NIGHTMARE - New Guinea Campaign

    With the early successes of Pearl Harbor, Singapore, the Philippines and the many other island takeovers, the Japanese next wanted to conqueror Australia and thus would have virtual total control of the Pacific Ocean. The island of New Guinea and the port of Port Moresby stood in their path. The Japanese navy landed troops on the northern shore from the Bismarck Sea and the Japanese army would have to trek across the Owen Stanley Mountains to have success and hopefully a surprise attack would force the allies from the island. The allies led by the Australians and the Americans had other ideas and stopped the Japanese only 30 miles from the southern port city. Thus ended any hopes for the Japanese Empire to incorporate the island nation of Australia. The allies would in fact go on their own island hopping campaign forcing the Japs back to Tokyo and ultimate allied victory.

    14-ROMAN RENAISSANCE - Sicily and the Italian Campaign

    As Italian resistance weakened, Hitler turned Italy from an Axis partner into a German satellite state directly under the Fuhrer's power. In the meantime, General Eisenhower planned the Allies next move to invade Sicily using Patton and Montgomery as the leaders of this attack. This campaign did not last long and the then the Italian fleet surrendered their ships at Malta. The Allies finally landed on the main European continent near Salerno on September 3, 1943 and proceeded towards Naples. The battle lasted 3 deadly months, but eventually 30,000 German troops surrendered in heavy fighting. The Allies then landed another invasion at Anzio on the way to Rome, which was finally in Allied hands in January of 1944. Italy was liberated and Mussolini was hanged by his own people and the people of Italy rejoiced as freedom finally arrived.

    June 6, 1944 is the day that will live on in world history as the day when the Allied armies led by Great Britain, Canada and the United States landed at Normandy with hundreds of thousands of troops and millions of tons of supplies, vehicles and weapons. It will forever be remembered in history as the day the Allied countries started the beginning of the end of the Nazis as a power in Europe and the day that started the liberation of France. With Dwight D. Eisenhower as the Supreme Commander of all Allied military, he helped plan this great operation for over a year. "Operation Overlord" was a success as the German armies were pushed off the beaches of Normandy and forced to retreat all the way back to Germany. The European theater of World War II was coming to an end and would officially end with the total surrender of Germany in the spring of 1945, less than one year after D-Day.

    16-KILLERS AND THE KILLED - Victory in the Atlantic, 1943-1945

    The Battle of the Atlantic rages on into the fourth year of the war. It is clear that the Allies are losing this battle far into 1943. But the Americans, Canadians and British set up a ring of strategic air bases to counteract the destructive damage that the German U-Boats are causing. Allied air power forces the U-Boats to stay submerged longer. The ones that attempt to surface are often found and are then destroyed by Allied destroyers, airplanes and other ships. But in the middle of the North Atlantic is the "Black Pit" where the planes are too far from their bases. The Allies then turn to bombing the factories that mass-produce the U-Boats and destroy them before they are put to sea. The Americans build their forces to win the Battle of the Atlantic by producing new long range planes and convert other merchant ships into mini-flat tops, which help win the battle during 1944. Many pilots are trained to help win this important prelude to the D-Day invasion. Just weeks before the Allied invasion of Normandy, the USS Guadalcanal, which is one of the converted aircraft carriers actually captures the U-Boat "U-505", the first enemy ship captured on the high seas since the War of 1812. The Allied anti-submarine plan annihilates almost the entire German U-Boat force and is the key to winning this battle which, help ensures that the Allied armies which are deployed in France never run out of supplies. Lastly, before the ultimate German surrender in April 1945, some 866 U-Boats are sunk to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Victory in the Atlantic is the result of teamwork and the integration of all available weapons for the Allies. The Battle of the Atlantic is over and the seas are once again safe for merchant ships to deliver their supplies to help win the grandest battle of all: World War II.

    17-THE TURKEY SHOOT - Conquest of the Marianas

    On December 10, 1941, Japan attacks the small American garrison on Guam with over 5,000 fully equipped Japanese soldiers. The few hundred marines had nothing bigger than a 30 caliber machine gun to protect against the huge Japanese naval force which came to seize the islands of the Marianas. The Americans had no choice but to surrender and the people of Guam were forced to learn Japanese. In June of 1944, the Americans appear in force on the horizon of the Marianas. They come with an invasion force of over 250,000 naval and marine troops. The Americans overwhelm the Japanese as they first strike Saipon and later liberate Guam. The Japanese navy launches a carrier force from the Philippines to help deter the American invasion in the Marianas. The Americans were ready and meet the and destroy the Japanese naval force in one of the most lopsided victories yet. Admiral Nimitz moves his entire commanding force from Pearl Harbor to Guam after it is secured in American hands. Over 17,000 Japanese lose their lives alone on Guam. The Americans help rebuild Guam from the ruins of over 2 1/2 years of control and war. Guam is in turn turned into the largest supply depot in the Pacific Ocean. Most importantly, the newly developed B-52's can now fly one-way to bomb Tokyo and other Japanese targets on the Japanese homeland from the safe confines of Guam. Thanks to the Seabees, Guam is turned into the largest attack base in the Pacific theater. The United States can now smell victory against Japan as Guam is now known as the Pacific Super Market.

    18-TWO IF BY SEA - Pelelui and Angaur

    In September of 1944, the "Island Hopping" campaign continued on in to the chain of islands known as Palau. The American forces led by the Marines attacked both Pelelui and Anguar on the way towards the liberation of the Philippines. Pelelui was supposed to be a quick victory for the Americans as they landed on the tiny isalnd on September 14th. Strong dug-in Japanese forces gave the Americans all they could handle as they would die almost to the final man. In the end, the Americans would clear the islands of all Japanese personnel as over 10,000 Jap soldiers would lose their lives in the impossible task of defending the islands. Pelelui and Anguar are just two more islands that bthe Americans had to take in order to help liberate the people of the Philippines. Even a small convoy of 13 naval boats and barges could not stop the Americans as Japanese tried to reinforce their troops. Thanks to both the 81st Infantry Division and the 1st Marine Division, victory was won in both Pelelui and Anguar.

    19-BATTLE FOR LEYTE GULF - Sea Battle for Leyte Gulf

    Leyte Gulf is where the war's largest naval battle took place in late October 1944. The American fleet, including both the Seventh Fleet under General MacArthur was responsible for the invasion in central Philippines and the Third Fleet headed by Admiral Nimitz. The Third Fleet's main objective was to protect the landing forces in and around Leyte Gulf. This responsibility to protect the invasion forces was given to Admiral "Bull" Halsey. The Japanese had no choice but to try to stop the Americans by meeting them head on before the invasion would begin. The Imperial Navy would split their attacking forces into three separate groups with the northern group being a diversionary force for the two main forces in the south and central. The two southern forces would try to surprise Halsey by going through the Surigao Strait. Over 132,000 troops, 200,000 tons of material on 750 transports and landing crafts were poised to land on the island of Leyte. The ultimate goal is the complete liberation of the Philippines. The Third Fleet boasted nearly a dozen aircraft carriers and six battle wagons, including four raised from the depths of Pearl Harbor: West Virginia, Maryland, California and Tennessee along with two of the newest and fastest in the world: USS New Jersey and the Iowa. The massive fleet under Halsey would sit off the coast of Samar. The two Japanese southern forces would split into two, with the main force traveling through the San Bernardino Strait in central part and was headed by five battleships (including the Yamato and Musashi), twelve cruisers and fifteen destroyers. The smaller southern force would try to sneak through Surigao Strait to attempt a surprise attack upon the Seventh Fleet. All three Japanese forces were soundly defeated with thousands of casualties. In just 4 days of fighting, the Japanese lost 3 battleships, 1 large carrier, 3 light carriers, 6 heavy cruisers, 4 light cruisers, 9 destroyers. Japan ceases to be a naval power. In fact, the battleship Musashi is the first battleship ever to be sunk entirely by airplanes. At midnight of the 25th, the biggest battle occurred off the coast of Samar as the Japanese southern forces met the Seventh Fleet head on. The Americans poured salvo upon salvo on the unsuspecting Japanese forces in the Surigao Strait. Well over 5,000 Japanese sailors are lost in the battle. Even the survivors refused rescue and the southern force is destroyed almost entirely. The main force led by the Yamato, the largest battleship ever, tried in vain to defeat the American navy but also failed, as 100's of American carrier planes would pummel the Japanese naval forces as they really had no planes left since the great Marianas Turkey Shoot, thus ending any hope that Japan would be able to save the Philippines. It is just a matter of time now when Japan will be forced to end the war and surrender.

    20-RETURN OF THE ALLIES - Liberation of the Philippines

    After the tremendous and complete naval victory in Leyte Gulf, it was time for the American forces headed by General Douglas MacArthur to land in the southern Philippines. It was MacArthur who said, "I Shall Return", after he was forced to leave the Philippines and his army to Japanese in December of 1941. In late October 1944, the American GI's finally landed in full force. Through the Filipino archipelago, through 7,000 island, through jungles and swamps, the Allies marched north towards Manila and the liberation of the island country. The Japanese tried to strike back by attacking the landing forces and ships with the Kamikaze airplanes. Once the Americans landed on the main island of Luzon in January 1945, it was a 100-mile march to Manila. In Manila, the 3rd US Army had to fight street to street and building to building to vanquish the Japanese. The enemy was doomed when their naval forces failed in the Battle of Leyte Gulf. The people of the Philippines finally got their freedom after 2 1/2 years of tyranny rule from the Imperial empire. The end is now in sight as the Americans will next land on Iwo Jima in the coming months.
