Summary:
The world's oceans are graveyards for some of the greatest ships ever built. During the mid-1500's the English warship Mary Rose was sunk by a French cannon. Finally, more then 400 years after it sank, its massive 580-ton hull would be raised from its watery grave. In the Baltic Sea the 17th century warship, The Vasa, was heralded as the greatest ship ever built at that time, but on the day of her maiden voyage she sank. After early salvages failed, our team spent more than a year battling dangers to raise her to the surface. When the huge French liner Normandie capsized in New York Harbor, it created a deadly toxic cesspool. The team along with the Navy Salvage Service pulled off the dangerous mission of bringing her back up. At the end of WWII in the shallow area of Scapa Flow a captured German Admiral gave the orders to scuttle 72 ships. Experts said they could never be raised. One man proved them wrong and raised 28 of them.
