Battle Ready

Battle Ready: 1-hr TV Program

February 15, 2017

Seventy-five years ago, America was drawn into World War II and the Pacific Northwest answered the call with lumber, hydroelectricity, even a secret plutonium factory to arm atomic bombs. Soldiers trained here. Cities were transformed by shipyards and airplane assembly lines. Victory was the priority and little thought went toward the environmental toll these efforts would take. This special program explores the hidden history of the military, the Northwest and the environment. The series also looks at the military’s presence in the Northwest today, including its impact on wildlife that depend on the same habitats where soldiers, sailors and pilots train for war.
