    SILENT VICTORY SUBMARINE WARFARE IN WWII 2 DVD SET! SPECIAL EMBOSSED TIN PACKAGING! After the devastating losses to America's Pacific Fleet in the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, the Japanese Imperial Navy ruled supreme in the vast Pacific Ocean. In time, the Pacific Fleet was able to rebuild to take on the Japanese. Much of the publicity went to the aircraft carriers and the Naval Aviators who flew from their decks. Yet, as important as the carriers were, the most significant naval warships in actually prosecuting the war toiled in almost complete obscurity. While battles like those that occurred at Midway, Santa Cruz and Leyte Gulf grabbed the headlines, the Pacific Fleet Submarine Force quietly went about the task of isolating Japan. The submarine fleet crippled Japan's industry and prevented re-supply and reinforcement of Japanese island garrisons by virtually destroying her merchant fleet. Silent Victory includes rare archival footage of epic naval battles and exclusive veteran interviews, covering the submarine war from the declaration of unrestricted submarine warfare after Pearl Harbor to Japan's unconditional surrender in Tokyo Bay. Devil Boat follows a group of Portland, Oregon PT Boat veterans as they attempt to resurrect a PT boat from the ravages of time and neglect, sixty years after the war's end. Their aim was to restore PT 658 to its original state, complete with armaments and the original compliment of three 1,200 horsepower Packard engines. With the restoration on the Willamette River as backdrop, Devil Boat takes you on an up-close-and-personal journey into the history of the PT boat, as told through the WWII PT Boat veterans' thrilling tales and rare archival footage of the origins, development and deployment of the Mosquito Squadrons. The restoration of PT 658 was a daunting task. It is not an ordinary boat, but these are not ordinary men, and their memories of combat on the high seas illustrate just how special these boats and their crews were.
