節目介紹 Introduction

握有將近140艘的先進戰艦以及潛水艇,日本海軍自衛隊擁有目前世界上規模最大的軍力之一。在過去的半世紀以來,他們始終都與美國並駕齊驅,保護著亞洲的遠東地區與日本周遭的領海。但在這之前,這兩股勢力在史上規模最大並最具破壞性的二戰海戰中互相交鋒。本節目將介紹這史上最不了起的海軍之一是如何崛起、衰落並再度復甦。

With nearly 140 modern ships and submarines, today's Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force has one of the largest fleets in the world. For over half a century, it has stood shoulder to shoulder with the U.S. Navy, defending the waters of far east Asia, and the vital sea lanes surrounding the Japanese islands. And yet previous to this, these two forces were locked in the largest and most destructive naval war in history - World War II. This program dramatizes the rise, fall, and rise of one of the most remarkable naval forces in all of history.
