Overview

The Pacific Ocean island of Guadalcanal in the Solomon Island chain became pivotal during World War II. The Japanese sought control of Guadalcanal to expand operations into Australia and for six month during 1942, the Allied forces attempted to stop them. The battle was long and bloody, the advantage gained and lost on both sides more than once. A total of 50 ships from both sides went down and 50 years later, Dr. Robert Ballard, who located the wrecks of the Titanic and the Bismarck, went underwater to explore the wreck. Using underwater footage, still photographs, and interviews with surviving WWII veterans, this documentary also highlights the excitement of underwater exploration, and the danger. Former President George Bush introduces the program. ~ Leslie Birdwell
