@ 2000 & 0000 Battle Group: Halsey
Audacious, gruff, and the U.S. Navy's ultimate warrior, Admiral "Bull" Halsey led his naval forces to victory in the Pacific Theater of War, destroying a large part of the Imperial Japanese Navy in WWII. His daring leadership inspired the sailors he commanded, and the enemy feared his very presence. Some say he was the finest U.S. naval leader since John Paul Jones. In this 2-hour special we'll meet the man and explore his battles, talking with officers and men who served under him. TV G
