At Leyte Gulf, the fate of the World War II hung in the balance as the two mightiest navies on earth battled tooth and nail for the Philippines.
Examine each incredible engagement and see the strategies of the greatest naval battle in history unfold in this riveting account. Stunning footage captures historic encounters like the stirring moment when U.S. battleships raised from the mud of Pearl Harbor met the bristling battleline of the Japanese northern fleet at Suriago Strait. Relive the proudest point in the history of the U.S. Navy, when a vastly overmatched American light carrier group managed to hold off Japan's huge southern fleet. And learn of the fatal miscalculation by the Japanese that ultimately cost them the battle.
Like no other program on video, this is the definitive look at the SHOWDOWN AT LEYTE GULF.
