August 14, 1945 marks the day that President Truman announced the unconditional surrender of the Japanese following the second nuclear bomb on Nagasaki on the 9th August just a few days before. This date still holds relevance 64 years later because it signifies the end of World War II. It also causes us to recall America’s efforts to win control of a crucial gateway to the Japanese empire in January of that same year. This mission is extensively documented in the Janson Media DVD, The Silent Wrecks of Kwajalein Atoll.
The story of The Silent Wrecks of Kwajalein Atoll is about a perfectly executed World War II mission that took place at the end of January 1944 in which U.S. forces defeated the Japanese at a little-known outpost in the Marshall Islands called Kwajalein Atoll. Few people have ever seen these wrecks because Kwajalein has been a restricted military base since the end of World War II. Now, for the first time, the U.S. military has granted permission to an outside film crew to document the wrecks for posterity, before they are lost forever to the dusts of time.
The Silent Wrecks of Kwajalein Atoll is produced by the Oceanic Research Group and is now available to international Television, VOD, DVD/Video, Non-Theatrical, and New Media markets, exclusively through Janson Media. Extra features include Photo Gallery with 125 production stills, “Making of a Battle” – World War II era U.S. Military film about the Battle of Kwajalein, Director.
