They are real stories of valiant missions, brave crews and intense combat. Experience the high-seas drama of navies from around the world as they take part in the heat of battle in the VESSELS OF WAR collection from HISTORY™.
From Nazi “wolf packs” to the battle of Okinawa, every major naval engagement of World War II is captured in Victory at Sea, a powerful documentary series culled from over 13,000 hours of footage shot by the U.S., British, German and Japanese navies.
Originally broadcast in 1952, this landmark series showcases some of the most riveting combat footage ever shot, now digitally restored and remastered.
Hero Ships profiles the battleships, destroyers, aircraft carriers, submarines, and specialized ships that belong in the warship hall of fame.
Archival footage and interviews are punctuated by all-access inspections of the ship’s “battle stations,” providing the complete combat history and evolving technology of these American ships, often through multiple conflicts, and the indispensable role they played in the defense of the United States.
