The score, by Richard Rodgers with Robert Russell Bennett conducting the NBC Symphony Orchestra, was such a hit that recordings have been almost continually available. Over 50 years after the original broadcast, the score, played by RCA Victor Symphony Orchestra, is available in a modern stereo recording, digitally remastered on compact disc. See more »
I first watched this film series at the age of 13 and to say the least I was enchanted. Richard Rogers Music was a huge boost to a documentary that was unequaled then and since. The stark black and white film and the real footage went a long way in providing the realism. I found the Narration excellent along with the haunting refrains of Rogers' score in the background. I have watched the film all 26 episodes time and time again and of course have the original records including the one with sound effects. I strongly recommend the series to anyone interested in the History of World War 11 as it pertained to the U.S. Navy and Marine Corp.
