Goofs

The opening scene is of a post war B-29 taking off with the red stripe in the white bars of the national insignia and the arctic red tail markings clearly visible. Also B-29s were too valuable during WWII to be used for patrol duty in Alaska, only coming into service after the fight to retake the Aleutian Islands had been completed. See more »

The Magnetic North is another compelling Victory at Sea episode
26 June 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This episode of Victory at Sea explores the battles between the Americans and the Germans over the Arctic Circle concerning the Nazi-occupied Norwegians and other like-minded nations. After the Germans' defeat, the Japanese take their turn resulting in another long, drawn out battle...A more somber segment in this classic World War II documentary series is once again given excellent treatment by the narration of Leonard Graves and the appropriate music of Richard Rodgers. Spectacular battle footage and the aftermath dominates to pay tribute to the fighting men who died in honor of their country. Well worth it to anyone interested in history as it was filmed for posterity.
