Synopsis

National Geographic: The Battle for Midway
This National Geographic documentary follows Dr. Robert Ballard, his crew, and four surviving veterans as they search for sunken Japanese and American warships. As Dr. Ballard sails toward Midway Island and the area of the famous World War II battle, a brief history of the conflict is shown using actual wartime footage, maps, and commentary from the four survivors (two Americans and two Japanese). Dr. Ballard's search for five Japanese ships is fruitless, but the team does manage to find the USS Yorktown, an aircraft carrier. The film follows Ballard down to the wreckage as he takes a mini-sub and team of underwater robots and dives 17,000 feet beneath the surface. ~ Ed Atkinson, Rovi
