|The Silent Wrecks of Kwajalein Atoll - DVD |
In January, 1944, U.S. forces won a critical victory over Japan at a little-known Marshall Island outpost called Kwajalein Atoll. Later, after the war, the area became a dumping ground for American warplanes such as Corsairs, B-25s, and SBD Dauntlesses. Now, you can explore the silent ship and aircraft wrecks of the area and learn about the historic battle that opened a crucial gateway to the Japanese empire. DVD extras include 125 production stills, a U.S. military film about the Battle of Kwajalein, and director's commentary. 55 minutes.
