Perhaps the best documentary I have ever seen
2 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best documentary on life aboard a US Navy ship that I have ever seen. One thing that really sets this series apart is that there is no narration. The officers, sailors, and marines tell the story - not someone else. It must have taken a herculean effort to make a cohesive story from the individual interviews and footage, but the result of the effort shows. This series also focuses on the everyday issues in sailors lives, not just the flying and fun. Exceptional. See this is you want to know what it is really like on a ship at sea. Not the Hollywood version, but real life.

I am a Navy veteran and a former aviator. This documentary shows squadron life in the way it really is. It also covers modern warship life, from the top to bottom. In fact, I have asked my son to watch it as he contemplates joining the Navy himself. I am reluctant to give anything 10 stars, but have this series deserves it. Watch it!
