Most people have an understanding of the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Few are acquainted with the aftermath in which our Navy undertook the job of clearing the Harbor and salvaging what was left of the US battle fleet. Turns out, due to luck and fierce resolve, a very great deal of the fleet could be saved. Join radio's Mike Plaskett for stories and photos of miracles of accomplishment. Ships being lifted off the muddy bottom of Pearl Harbor. Battleships being rolled over and re-floated. Warships rebuilt and sent back to battle. All in sixty short minutes!
Listen to Mike Plaskett with co-host Dale Abraham for Rhythm Sweet & Hot on 90.5 FM, WESA, an NPR station, every Saturday from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
