This collection consists of all twenty-six episodes from the half-hour documentary television series Victory at Sea, originally broadcast on NBC in 1952 and 1953. Produced by Henry Salomon with narration by Leonard Graves and music by Richard Rodgers, the series used archival footage to present the history of naval warfare during World War II. The series won an Emmy award in 1954 for best public affairs program and in the same year was condensed into a feature film under the same title. All episodes are 16 mm, black and white prints with sound. They are arranged chronologically by original air date.
