DVD: Abbot 1943-45
All Disks Are Sold Out!
We are no longer offering the Abbot 1943-45 DVD. The information here is purely for the edification of anyone who has a disk and would like to know more about it. Virtually all of the material on the DVD is posted on with site, including all of the videos and photographs.
The Abbot 1943-45 DVD contains high-resolution versions of all of the videos that appear on this web site, along with several slide shows. We sold these DVDs to buyers around the world, since running footage of Fletcher-class destroyers is relatively scarce.
The films and slide shows total more than 45 minutes, and include:
- Honshu bombardment viewed from Abbot (3.5 min. color film)
- Destroyer Life in the Pacific (20 min. B&W film)
- Depth charge runs
- Aircrew rescues
- Escorting battleships, cruisers and aircraft carriers
- Ship-to-ship transfers
- Anti-aircraft defenses
- Views of destroyers Abbot, Kidd, Bullard and Murray
- Operations against Japan (8 min. color film)
- Abbot cruising off Japan
- Seaplane operations
- Fleet Admiral Nimitz
- Aerial attacks on Japan
- Battleship action against Japan
- Abbot-Cowpens collision aftermath (2 min. B&W film)
- Life aboard Abbot (slide show)
- Abbot reunions (slide show)
- Abbot crew photos (slide show, 99 images)
The disk is compatible with all DVD-R devices and NTSC DVD players. It may not play on some older DVD players or PAL/SECAM players.
