Product Description:

Teams of highly skilled deep sea divers explore the mysterious wreckage of sunken warships in this Military Channel series, searching for new insight into history's greatest naval battles. Each of the four episodes included in this collection focuses on a different set of remains, using remarkable underwater photography to capture every corner of the massive relics.

Description by Image Entertainment:

As World War II raged in the South Pacific, Allied Forces faced one of the most formidable of all Japanese strongholds: Truk - a self-contained "fortress" chain of high islands encircled in a deep lagoon and protective barrier reef. In a three-day barrage of firepower, the Allies wreaked havoc on the Japanese forces, leading to more than 70 shipwrecks, 400 aircraft destroyed or sunk and the menace of this big fortress removed forever. The crystal-clear waters of Truk lagoon now reveal the relics of the Japanese war machine and the story of one of the war's decisive battles.
This massive aircraft carrier has a fabled past: launching in 1945, serving admirably in both the Korean and Vietnam wars, used as a show of force by President Kennedy during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis and even served as the carrier from which Senator John McCain launched his plane before being shot down over Vietnam. The "Mighty O" housed a crew of nearly 3,500 and 80 aircraft. On May 17, 2006, using more than 500 pounds of plastic explosives, the U.S. Navy sunk the 888-foot aircraft carrier 22 miles offshore of Pensacola, Florida, to become the world's largest intentionally created artificial reef, resting at a depth that is accessible to recreational divers.
When a team of divers descend nearly 300 feet to examine what they thought was a sunken supply ship, they find the hull of a World War II United States Navy Destroyer shrouded in lost fishing nets. They've also found a mystery, because according to Navy records, the ship never sank. In fact the USS Murphy was sold for scrap in October of 1973. Now, our intrepid team of divers and historical researchers will piece together the lost story of the USS Murphy.
