The Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor destroyed the United States' vaunted battleship navy. Yet, the most powerful fleet the world had ever seen would rise from the ashes of December 7th.To man the submarines, cruisers and battleships that constituted this new flotilla, the U.S. Navy sought tens of thousands of recruits. Featured on this DVD are six rare films used to both publicize the role of the Navy, and to attract volunteers for America's new fleet. Includes "Men Make the Navy" narrated by Lowell Thomas, "The Blue Jackets' Manual", "The History of Naval Aviation" and other films. You'll thrill to the sights and sounds of naval training, and learn about what it took to make it as a bluejacket in the 1940's. Some of the films included are silent pictures with intertitles and historic music soundtracks. Digitally remastered and restored from original 16mm prints, many of the films on this DVD have never been available to the public. Please note, because of their age and rarity, image and sound quality can vary.
