Incredible combat footage and firsthand recollections from the men who served aboard her highlight this definitive profile of one of America's most celebrated warships.
Seventeen stories tall and three football fields long, the magnificent U.S.S. Intrepid was one of the fiercest warships ever to steam out of a navy shipyard. From the epic WWII battle for the Leyte Gulf and the deadly struggle in Vietnam to the peacetime recovery of American space capsules, the "Fighting I" and her crew could always be found at the center of the action.
Trace the complete story of this mighty carrier and the men who fought and died on her decks. See never-before-seen footage of the Intrepid in action, and hear firsthand accounts from aviators, astronauts, gunners and officers, including General Colin Powell and U.S. Senator John McCain. And meet millionaire Zachary Fisher, the man who single-handedly saved this great vessel from the scrap heap by turning her into the world's largest naval museum.
