Movie Reviews

German War Reels w/ Generic Narration
R. Meyer | USA | 09/03/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this dvd blind out of curious interest. Risky move, considering the packaging is generic, along with the description, which is misleading. I thought, well I was hoping this would be a detailed history of the actual U-boat submarines, not a general history of the U-boat war which is what these are.

What you have here is German war reels narrated by a British guy who is giving a VERY broad interpretation of the battle of the Atlantic. It's not bad though, not at all, because to my happy surprise virtually all the footage is taken from German cameramen assigned to U-boat duty during the war. You will see sinkings, and candid behavior aboard the u-boats, including some very nice WWI footage.

I estimate 75% of the footage I had not seen before. I was very happy with this. Some of it is familiar, but its always interesting to watch like the launching of the Bismarck, Graf Spee and Scharnhorst capital ships.

You have to watch yourself to not fall asleep as the British narrator is strictly going through the motions and is quite boring. Get this only for the excellent footage. All black/white."

"Presents a detailed review of the status and effectiveness of the UBoat campaign in the early years of WW2. Shows the impact the fall of France had in allowing the use of UBoat bases on the Biscay coast, allowing extended times at sea, which effectively increased the number of UBoats on station in the Atlantic at a time."
