The Battle for Leyte Gulf is another exciting episode of Victory at Sea
30 June 2007 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Japan feels the agony of defeat more and more as the Americans attack them at every turn in the battle of Leyte Gulf in the Philippines. The empire of the Japanese is fast disappearing...The narration, music, and cuts of shot after shot of explosions dominate this episode in a bombastic show of the battleships of Pearl Harbor avenging their attack with gusto. If anyone wanted to know how different the Japanese of today were from how they were during World War II, watch this episode to witness how determined they were to die without surrendering. This Victory at Sea segment marked the counting of the number of days when the Asian country would accept utter defeat and fully surrender to America. As always, special thanks to narrator Leonard Graves and musician Richard Rodgers for their stirring contributions. Another highly recommended episode for any World War II history fans out there.
