Episode 1: USS Murphy
Exploring an unknown target 75 miles off the coast of New Jersey, Dan Crowell discovers the remains of half of a US warship that turns out to have two lives. According to official records, the ship never sank. Join Dan and his team as they brave the cold and deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean to investigate and discover exactly what happened to the USS Murphy.
Episode 2: Torpedo Alley
The coastal waters off North Carolina became what was know to German U-boat commanders as the American Turkey shoot. Ship after ship met their doom before most Americans were even aware the country was involved in the war. Soon the tables turned, and the hunters became the hunted. Follow Dan Crowell as his team as they reveals this tragic page in American history.
Episode 3: Operation Hailstone
Like an oasis in the middle of the Pacific during WWII, Truck Lagoon was a strategic out-post used by the Japanese war machine as a supply port that added in their domination of the Pacific. The American forces were struggling to regain a foot hold and Truck Lagoon soon became the target where the US Navy would exact their revenge for the attack on Pearl Harbor. Dan and his team as they explore the rusting hulks still loaded with live torpedoes and the largest warheads ever made.
Episode 4: USS Oriskany
As WWII came to a close, the USS Oriskany, one the most advanced air craft carriers, was still under construction. Before it could be completed a new age of jet engines rendered her obsolete. After being redesigned, the Mighty “O” finally served during several decades of armed conflict and wars. Though it became an icon of American war power, the USS Oriskany was sunk at the hands of those who served on her. She is now resting on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico as the largest artificial reef ever made.
