Aircraft Carrier USS Enterprise, destined to become the most decorated ship of World War ll, was the only carrier to be front and center in every major sea battle in the Pacific. The Enterprise and her crew engaged in some of the fiercest battles ever seen, marked by intense firepower, instinct and a 360-degree coordination between the carrier, the destroyers, the aircraft above and the submarines below.
This groundbreaking presentation from THE HISTORY CHANNEL® premieres an entirely new way to experience war on television. Relying on breathtaking computer animation, the program inserts you into the great engagements and critical moments of battle as a participant, not from the perspective of combat cameraman. You see with the eyes of the gunners, commanders, engineers, pilots and sailors as they wage war against the Japanese. And with this marvelously flexible technology, you also gain a bird's eye view of the stunning coordination between the American war vessels.
You are there for the all-or-nothing turning point of the Pacific Theater!
Enterprise and her escort ships and submarines engage in the largest sea battle in history. Raging across the Philippine Sea, the Allies strive to prepare the way for the American invasion of the Philippines and to cut Japan and its Navy off from crucial fuel supplies.
In a series of ferocious surface and air firefights — which BATTLE 360 puts you in the thick of — the Imperial Japanese Navy is finally splintered and rendered ineffective. This will be the last and greatest clash between fleets in the history of the world.
With the enemy fleet in chaos, Enterprise and the American carrier force clear the way to the Philippines and, ultimately, Tokyo.
