This is a new version of the attack on U.S.S Laffey, shows some scenes taken from other films, i.e. the chaplain administering last fight on a carrier flight deck. The Laffey put up a hellacious fight and never sank.
The camera was in the gun turret under attack. It's Amazing! The U.S.S. Laffey, "the ship that would not die", was hit by 6 Kamikaze and 4 bombs, but remained afloat after an 80 minute battle.
Seaman Laffey was awarded the Medal of Honor for his stand against Confederate forces on 5 March 1864. The ship earned the nickname "The Ship That Would Not Die" for her exploits during the D-Day invasion and the battle of Okinawa when she successfully withstood a determined assault by conventional bombers and the most unrelenting kamikaze air attacks in history.
Laffey is a U.S. National Historic Landmark and is preserved as a museum ship in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, outside Charleston.
