A brief introduction...

These pages are intended to present a complete bibliography of film and video coverage of U-boats and U-boat officers/crew.

Much more so than books, films (both features and documentaries) have been used to present a message, and consequently, most film treatments of U-boats present a one-sided and often stereotyped view of the boats, the battles and the men. Not surprisingly, most World War II-era films involving U-boats contain a large element of propaganda. Therefore, many of these films can not be recommended for their objectivity or historical accuracy. However, these films do give a good idea of prevailing sentiments of both Allied nations and Germany toward U-boats during and after World War II. Whenever possible, inaccuracies or biases are pointed out in the Notes section for each video.

That said, on to the films!
