Product Description:

The Presidential work of John Fitzgerald Kennedy is still regarded as being among the finest the Oval Office has ever born witness to. But prior to his tenure at the White House, Kennedy was an acclaimed Naval Lieutenant who served to distinction in the Second World War. However, as the battle raged, the boat on which Kennedy served sailed into some rocky waters near the Solomon Islands, leading to a catastrophic sinking. This film draws on a number of eyewitness accounts to tell the tale of that fateful night, including surviving crew members, local islanders, and officers from nearby boats. Kennedy is portrayed as a heroic leader throughout, with many of the accounts praising him for his fearlessness in the face of extreme adversity. Ocean explorer Dr. Robert Ballard neatly rounds off the package by taking a trip to the wreckage of the ship, making this a comprehensive overview of a little-known incident from JFK's past.

Description by Warner Home Video:

At the height of the Second World War, a young Navy Lieutenant stood at the helm of a U.S. patrol boat and in one ill-starred night made his mark in the annals of history. That young man later became on of the most popular Presidents of the US - John Fitzgerald Kennedy. National Geographic reveals the true story behind the legend - a more complex, more intriguing tale than we were ever led to believe. Famed ocean explorer Dr. Robert Ballard will travel to the Solomon Islands to find the sunken wreck of Kennedy's boat, the PT-109. Through eyewitness accounts of survivors, local islanders and other PT crews on patrol that night, along with powerful footage from the war in the Pacific, we retell the remarkable story of JFK's heroic struggle to rally his crew and get them safely to shore and explore the controversies that have swirled around the boat's sinking.
