Seapower shaped the destiny of the United States in the 20th Century. Admiral Dewey's triumph at Manila in 1898 heralded a new era for the U.S. Navy. By 1941, it was one of the most powerful on earth.

Featured on this DVD are twelve rare and historic films made by and for the U.S. Navy during the critical decades before WWII. Go "cruising with our Navy" in the Atlantic and Pacific, and join the Asiatic Fleet near Shanghai.

See original newsreels of the fight against the U-boat menace in WWI, and the development of the first aircraft carrier USS Langley, and the use of zepplins by the Navy. Witness the attack against the gunboat USS Panay that nearly provoked war four years before Pearl Harbor, and see the great battleship fleet in all its pre-December 7th glory.

B&W Films. Run time: 94 minutes.
