Design for Peace marks final U.S. triumph in Victory at Sea
2 July 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This episode starts with footage of the atomic bomb that was tested in New Mexico before it goes on to the devastation that happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. With that Japan surrenders as that country's diplomat signs the official document prepared by the U.S. military before General MacArthur and fellow offerers also sign on. Before the war's end, however, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt dies during his fourth term in office. Millions attend his funeral to see his casket go by. As the day comes, the U.S. military comes to signs saying, "Welcome Home" before they are treated by mothers, wives, children's, and fellow neighbors. They also attend a parade in their honor as the series come to a close...Kudos as always for Leonard Graves' narration and Richard Rodgers' music. Also thanks to Henry Saloman and Richard Hanser for writing the whole thing, M. Clay Adams for the direction, Isaac Kleinerman for editing, and Saloman again for producing Victory at Sea. They all deserve a grand round of thanks for making perhaps the most important television documentary series ever made about World War II. Congrats all!
