Summary
"In 1942, American forces fought the Japanese to a standstill in the pivotal Battle of Midway. This documentary is John Ford's stirring tribute to the men who fought for the island. Much of the action shown was filmed during the actual Japanese attack. After three and a half years of tough fighting, the United States landed forces on the island of Okinawa, at the very doorstep of Japan. Follow along with the 6th Marine Division as it participates in the grueling, brutal struggle for Japan's last island bastion. This film is a tribute to the crews and pilots who fought and lived aboard the US Navy's fast attack carriers in WWII. Robert Taylor narrates the story of the 'Fighting Lady' and her actions as representative of all carriers"--Container.
