National Geographic: The Lost Fleet of Guadalcanal
I originally bought this DVD about 10 years ago. This expedition was led by Bob Ballard (of Titanic and Bismarck fame) in 1992 on the 50th anniversary of the August 7, 1942 US Marine Invasion and the August 8-9, 1942 Battle of Savo Sound. Among the sunken ships they located on the floor of "Iron Bottom Sound" was the USS Quincy (CA-39) which was sunk in that battle. My uncle was the Navigator of the Quincy and killed in that battle.
One of the highlights that adds to the understanding in this film is the inclusion of surviving veterans and spouses of casualties of this battle, with their reminiscences. Not only American survivors were including, but also Japanese.
After having the privilege this past August of attending the 70th Anniversary Comemoration of the August 7, 1942 Invasion of Guadalcanal, I bought 2 copies of this DVD for my cousins.
It is well done and well worth buying, especially for review every few years to recall the sacrifices made for us so long ago.
