Superb documentary
20 April 2014 | by grantssSee all my reviews

Superb documentary of a deployment-in-the-life of USS Nimitz, a US Navy aircraft carrier. Told from the sides of the many personnel on board, from the captain all the way on down. Particularly impressive is the fact that you get to know the sailors as people, not just another function within a vast community.

No narration, but everything follows perfectly through the stories and opinions of the individuals. The editing is excellent, the seascapes and aerial photography fantastic, and the choice of themes for each episode spot on.

Great series.
