The Military History collection is the most extensive collection of hundreds of hard-to-find military history programs - past, present and future. This is the powerful story of the U.S.S. Franklin, "Big Ben" and the men who brought her home. Fighting her way to Iwo, the Philippines, Guam, Okinawa, Formosa and the Japanese mainland the U.S.S. Franklin took the kamikaze onslaught and in turn she bloodied the enemy. Against all odds she limped her way across the Pacific, the Panama Canal and made the port of New York as the most heavily damaged ship ever to make home port under her own power.
