The Russian Navy

The Russian Navy

Vast, mysterious, threatening -- Russia with its seemingly limitless reserves of manpower has always fielded a powerful and feared army. But, lesser known is the fact that it has a long and superlative naval tradition, one that streches back to the 17th century -- well before the US Navy was even formed. For a time in the 1980s, it even possessed a fleet of modern, innovative and potent warships second only to the US Navy itself. And all of this can be traced to the vision and ambition of a single man -- Russian Tsar Peter the Great -- who, in the late 1600s, created a modern navy virtually from scratch. This program explores the incredible history of Russia's extraordinary warships and submarines, its remarkable leaders and seaman, and the tragic defeats and stunning victories that shaped 'The Russian Navy'. Today, it remains a force to be reckoned with on and under seas of the world. Shot on location in Russia.
