The Discovery of the U.S.S. Yorktown

More than 50 years ago, a lonely outpost of coral and sea named Midway erupted into one of World War II's greatest naval battles. Now, "Titanic" discoverer Dr. Robert Ballard and a team of experts return to Midway to attempt the impossible: locate at least one of five downed aircraft carriers more than three miles underwater. With him are four WWII veterans - two Japanese and two Americans - whose gripping stories of wartime survival create an emotional counterpoint to the search for their missing ships. This extraordinary DVD presentation also features rare battle footage by Hollywood director John Ford.
