As the pirates who have terrorized merchant ships off the Somalia coast have made worldwide headlines with their antics in the past year, an international military coalition spearheaded by the U.S. Navy has made headway capturing them and stopping their hijackings.

Now, Spike and 44 Blue Productions chronicles those efforts in the one-hour special, U.S. Navy: Pirate Hunters, a documentary that gives the viewer unprecedented access aboard the U.S.S Gettysburg as it patrols the busy Gulf of Aden.
