Join the filmmakers from the History Channel as they trace the remarkable fifty-one year career of the last U.S. battleship ever to be built, and ever to serve our nation. Launched in 1944, the U.S.S. Missouri fought in World War II, the Korean War, and the First Gulf War. Over the course of those three wars, generations of sailors strolled the decks of this iconic Naval vessel. In this documentary the very same soldiers who served on the U.S.S. Missouri during wartime step aboard once again to reflect on their vivid maritime memories. In the process, the viewer discovers how the sailors who served on the U.S.S. Missouri's final mission could be direct descendents of the brave Navy officers who were onboard during her maiden voyage. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
