Seapower follows the history of naval warfare from ancient times to modern times covering all facets of this fascinating subject.

On this disc, which is volume two of a two part series we see how technology has progressed to the point that ships are now ironclad and doing battle in the United States during the Civil War. At the time, there were only four ironclads the whole world over, yet even so they managed to get two of them to do battle against each other that changed the way the designers would look at shipcraft forever.

The history lesson then moves onto World War II and the destruction of the Japanese Fleet and the recovery of the ships later on years later. Germany's famous U 534 is also featured on this disc and incredibly the camera crew for Cromwell Productions were allowed special access to the U Boat that makes for  some absolutely spectacular footage.

I would recommend this and Volume 1 to anyone with an interest in the history of naval warfare and also as a valuable addition to any schools history section.

Whilst there are no extras, there are a number of features utilised throughout the disc as listed below:
