A classic of early U.S. television, Victory at Sea was produced by Henry Solomon, formerly a research assistant to the famous historian Samuel Eliot Morrison, and originally aired on NBC in 1952–53.

It is a 26-part series showing combat footage, especially naval, from World War II; including some famous shots like the flag raising at Iwo Jima's Mount Suribachi and the "Kiss" in Times Square on V-J Day. It is famous for its orchestral soundtrack composed by Richard Rodgers, which is often played separately from the series.
