    日軍佔領菲律賓兩年後,麥克阿瑟將軍實踐承諾,領軍重踏菲國領土,收復失地。美軍在馬尼拉灣和科隆灣組織空襲,後者更成為整個修收復行動的轉捩點,十多艘補給船、貨輪同油輪幾乎全數遭美軍擊沉,推進了稍後的雷伊泰島登陸,最終導致日軍投降。躺在科隆灣清澈海水中的多艘艦艇殘骸,便是美軍這場無情報復的見證。

    Shipwrecks: When History Resurfaces -  The Recapture

    “People of the Philippines: I have returned! […] our forces stand again on Philippine soil – soil consecrated in the blood of our two peoples.”  Douglas MacArthur’s speech in October 1944 marked the Allied reconquest of the Philippines after two years of Japanese occupation, and a personal victory for the general. A few weeks earlier on September 21–22, 1944, he’d organized an air raid in Manila Bay and Coron Bay. It was a victory for America: 300 Japanese planes, 25 merchant vessels and several battleships were neutralized, eventually leading to the surrender of Japanese troops.

    On February 11, 1945, the Americans and Filipino guerillas finally liberated Manila. Strewn beneath the crystal-clear waters of the island nation, amazing underwater wreckage tells the tale of liberation while preserving the memory of some of WWII’s bloodiest and most devastating sea battles.

    • 被遺忘的船難

      1914年第一次世界大戰爆發前兩個月,愛爾蘭女皇號在魁北克聖羅倫斯河口遇上撞船意外,之後連同過千名乘客極速沉沒,是繼鐵達尼號之後歷史上最致命的船難,但一直為世人所忽略。究竟是怎麼樣的意外,導致這艘行走大西洋航線近百次的巨輪,在短短十數分鐘內迅速在河道上沒頂?

      Shipwrecks: When History Resurfaces -  The Forgotten Shipwreck



      Not far from the mouth of the Saint Lawrence River near the little town of Rimouski, Canada, lies the wreck of the ocean liner Empress of Ireland, a majestic transatlantic vessel commissioned to ply the sea route between Quebec and Liverpool. Its disappearance on May 29, 1914 was one of the most deadly shipwrecks in history after the Titanic. What unexpected event cost the lives of 1,012 of its passengers?  Braving icy waters and the dangers of this deep-sea dive, Kevin Sempé will try to understand how this massive vessel, which was on its 96th voyage across the Atlantic, could sink so quickly to the bottom of the river. WWI was declared just days after the ship sank, relegating its victims to the forgotten annals of History.

    • 永不沉沒的航空母艦

      地中海的「美麗之島」科西嘉在地理位置上具有重要的戰略價值,故在二戰時期成為美國在意大利的空軍據點,在島上建造了共17座空軍基地及機場,有過二萬美軍進駐,猶如永不沉沒的航空母艦。該島的東岸水域埋藏了大量二戰時期的戰機殘骸,每一架背後都有着不同故事,記載着一眾美軍年輕機師的壯烈犧牲。

      Shipwrecks: When History Resurfaces - The Aircraft Carrier Island

      Known for its mountainous landscapes and idyllic beaches, Corsica — the “Isle of Beauty”— is also home to hidden treasures. Beneath the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea off the island’s east coast lie over a dozen wrecks from WWII, waiting to be explored. Kevin and his crew will shed light on Corsica’s strategic location at the end of WWII and its key role in the Italian Campaign and preparations for the Allied invasion of Southern France. Finally, the discovery of several US Air Force planes will remind us that 17 airfields were built on the island, nicknamed “USS Corsica” by the US Army.

    • 德國艦隊之墓

      在蘇格蘭北端的斯卡帕灣,有七艘德國戰艦在海底沉睡。這七座巨鐡,見證了第一次世界大戰結束的一段經典歷史:戰敗德國不甘艦隊船隻落入英國皇家海軍手中,遂於海灣內發動集體自沉行動,逾70艘戰艦於在短短幾小時內先後沉沒,葬身海灣的冰冷海底,釀成海事歷史上最大規模的自殺事件。

      Shipwrecks: When History Resurfaces -  Graveyard Of The German Fleet

      Off the coast of Scotland in the bay of Scapa Flow, seven ships slumber at the bottom of the North Sea. They are German vessels — battleships and light cruisers from WWI. How did these ships sink and why? How did so many vessels go down in the same spot within just a few yards of each other? As we dive with Kevin Sempé and his team, we learn about one of the most emblematic events that marked the end of WWI: how the Kaiser’s fleet, interned at Scapa Flow by the Royal Navy, was scuttled when Germany chose to sink her own ships rather than let them fall into British hands.
