The Lost Fleet of Guadalcanal
- 1 Season
Guadalcanal was the site of some of the fiercest and most destructive naval battles of World War Two. As many as fifty US and Japanese ships were sunk in the waters off the island, so many that the strait became known as Ironbottom Sound. Dr. Robert Ballard, who found and explored the Titanic, attempts to locate as many sunken ships as possible, and combines underwater film, history of the battles, interviews with survivors, and the high drama of near death aboard the submersible craft to create an enthralling documentary.
