"Relive the aerial dogfights and naval clashes of the Battle of the Philippines Sea, thanks to stunning color footage. It is a visual record of the battle that underlined U.S. superiority in the Pacific."


Hope you enjoy!.

My only problem was the narrative talking about the 200 Hellcats that were launched. Of the over 200 aircraft launched 85 were Hellcats with 77 dive bombers and 54 Torpedo bombers. Also the results were a bit over stated. But the footage was nice to see.
