Synopsis by Beth Deki

Monte Markham narrates this historical documentary on the evolution and subsequent demise of the great battleships. See the role these great ships played in the conflicts of the 20th century and how they fought in ship to ship battles as well as provided ship to land support. Witness their significance during World War II; not only were they used for at sea battles but they provided tremendous ground support for the Korean, Vietnam, and Persian Gulf conflicts. The video concludes with an explanation about the strategic disadvantage of these one time great naval powers and is a tribute to the heritage of the great naval battleships.
