The Saga of the U.S.S Franklin
Save on World War2 & Jet Aircraft DVDs at Zeno's Flight Shop
This inspiring documentary, "The Saga of the Franklin" shows how the gallant officers and men of the distinguished Essex class carrier USS Franklin (CV13) overcame incredible battle damage inflicted by a devastating bomb hit to save their ship and bring it home. Remarkably, combat cameramen happened to be aboard ship to capture the action. The film also contains rare and informative color footage of late war Vought F4U Corsair and Curtiss SB2C Helldiver combat operations from the Franklin right off the coast of Japan. Perhaps most memorably, you'll see the officers and men of the USS Franklin first ably going about their daily business and then catapulted by fate into performing selfless acts of heroism under extraordinarily difficult circumstances.
