      • Narrator: The most powerful fleet in the Japanese Navy is on the attack. Their massive guns primed to crush the allied advance. The only force standing in the way of a devastating enemy victory is a handful of tiny U.S. ships and planes. It's a courageous group of American tin cans facing off against a giant Japanese Armada led by the legendary Yamato, the largest battleship in history. Through state of the art computer animation experience heroic stories of the sailors and aviators who faced the enemy onslaught and ensured the death of the Japanese Navy.
