Summary
  • First episode: You'll see how an intelligence unit called "Station Hypo" ingeniouosly broke the Japanese code and steered us to victory in the Pacific. You'll meet two pilots, one Japanese, the other American, who tell how they bombed each other's ships. This was a war of nerves between two legendary admirals - Chester W. Nimitz and Isoroku Yamamoto. Together, they squared off in the Pacific to fight what history named "The Battle of the Century."
  • Second episode: Brings you onto the "white sands of hell." You'll face an enemy 4,000 strong in a "banzai" charge. You will hear the actual recording of an amphibious landing of Marines hitting the beach. And you will witness how thousands of Japanese civiliations took their own lives at "Suicide Gulch." From the "great Mariana's Turkey Shoot" you will meet legendary Navy ace pilot Alex Vraciu, who shot down six Japanese bombers in less than eight minutes
