The author of Das Boot produced this TV documentary about the U-boat war.


Even more so than his previous work, this documentary emphasizes Buchheim's view of the U-boat war as an unequal battle that continued to be waged long after the odds ceased to be in the U-boats' favor. A strongly pacifist and controversial film.
