Victory at Sea is a multi-part documentary series highlighting primarily the American naval aspects of this war both in the Atlantic and Pacific. Produced in the early 1950s, it was a groundbreaking project not to be excelled until the World at War (selected episodes) appeared in the 1970s. Although some thought it was just propaganda, it was far from that – it was a distillation of millions of feet of film taken during the conflict. Some fascinating details about the production of this series can be found in this biography of the director M. Clay Adams. Additional information is available from The Encyclopedia of Television; archives. org also has all the episodes, just not in sequential order.
