Korean War Film “Floating Fortress”

On June 25, 2010 we mark the 60th anniversary of the beginning of the Korean War in 1950.  In honor of this historic date, here is the 1952 Navy-produced film “Floating Fortress,” which portrays life aboard the battleship USS New Jersey (BB-62) during the war. 

The 14-minute documentary highlights the crew’s living conditions and bombardment of enemy positions along the shore.
