Relive the battle that changed the course of World War II and discover its watery graveyard of sunken ships

In 1942, World War II raged around a previously obscure island in the southwest Pacific called Guadalcanal. Six months of savage fighting transformed the channel north of the island into a final resting place for some fifty Allied and Japanese warships. Fifty years later, Dr. Robert Ballard, the explorer who found the wrecks of the Titanic and Bismarck, leads a joint National Geographic Society/U.S. Navy expedition to explore this watery graveyard. Join in his discovery of ships unseen for half a century. Retrace the brutal events at Guadalcanal that changes the course of the war. Share the vivid, searing memories of those who fought and survived, and witness their touching reunions with their ships and former enemies. With a special introduction by former President George H.W. Bush, relive some incredible moments in the histories of war and exploration.
