The footage sat for decades, its unique view of important encounters unseen. Shot from aircraft high above the Pacific, it captures the intense action as American forces battled Japanese defenders in the fabled Island-Hopping campaign that led to Japan's doorstep. Enriched with cutting-edge CGI graphics which create detailed contour maps of the islands, PACIFIC: THE LOST EVIDENCE sheds new light on some of WWII's most important engagements.
It was the final stanza of a brutal campaign in which over a quarter of a million people lost their lives. It was a conflict that pit a vast, modern war machine against an increasingly desperate enemy. As the Allied juggernaut closed in on Japan's home islands, Okinawa's defenders relied on suicide tactics and banzai charges to stall the invasion force.
