DEATH OF THE JAPANESE NAVY - January 5 @ 10PM/9C
1944...the Pacific. It is one of the most amazing, lopsided naval battles in history: A mighty Japanese fleet let by the Yamato, the biggest battleship in the world, versus Taffy 3, a small U.S. task unit of destroyers and baby flat-tops...ships too weak to fight and too slow to run. David battles Goliath in a fight for survival - with the lives of thousands of American soldiers in the balance.
