National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Robert Ballard tackles one of the enduring mysteries of World War II—the role of a Japanese midget sub in the attack on Pearl Harbor. As he heads out to locate the sub's wreckage, Ballard is intrigued by the possibilities. Was the submarine Pearl Harbor's first casualty? Could it have escaped the U.S. destroyer that fired upon it? And, perhaps most critical, why didn't the sub's presence tip American forces to the approaching attack?


Ballard's quest is only part of the story. Survivors' accounts describe the attack in gripping, horrifying detail, and commentary by esteemed historian Stephen Ambrose sets Pearl Harbor into its historical context. Footage from a remotely operated submersible yields unprecedented glimpses of the U.S.S. Arizona, the downed battleship that still rests in the murky waters of Pearl Harbor.


Not available for shipment outside of the U.S. and Canada.

Comments about Pearl Harbor Legacy of Attack DVD :

I have seen this Documentary before on the National Geographic Channel a while back and enjoyed it so I purchased this DVD for my player. It gives an accurate account of the famous Japanese Attack on WWII and the men along with the ships who lost their lives during the battle. The midget submarine that was suspected to start the Pearl Harbor Attack was sunk by a Navy destroyer. Also there might be some scary underwater scenes of the Arizona Battleship, not recommend for younger viewers but it shows the underwater wreck of the ship and it's leaking fuel and oil beneath the water. Yes, I highly recommend this to anyone or even a historian interested about the subject. Thank You National Geographic.

After filming one of the most unusual attacks ever seen in the African savannah—four cheetahs being brutally attacked by two male lions—filmmaker Reinhard "Leo" Kuenkel joins forces with world-renowned lion expert Craig Packer to decipher what happened during this incredible take down, and more importantly, why it happened in the first place.

British styles were the earliest to take hold in the city, but a local style soon evolved and gained national attention, with elements that were influenced by German ironworkers and the neoclassical design that was popular in architecture of the 19th century.

From desirable traits like supersensitive hearing and smell to the unintended consequences of genetic diseases, learn how nature and man have partnered to deliberately create new and specialized versions of man's best friend.

National Geographic dissects the fascinating physiology of this living fossil, from its 24 clustered eyes down to the tips of its stinging tentacles, and examines how man's impact on the environment may be creating a growing invasion.
