Movie Reviews

Battle of the Atlantic
Raymond M. Rault | 01/26/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This BBC production is part of the excellent series of historical programs that british television has produced on the second world war. The material is written and produced by Andrew Williams and I have read the book which he published on the same subject. In one hour and a half it is not possible to cover all aspects of the subject so that the focus is on the duel between U-Boat command and the Royal Navy. In addition there is a fascinating section on the role of the codebreakers at Bletchley park who broke the German Enigma-machine code and were able to anticipate the U-Boat movements. The human cost of this struggle was horrendous with great loss of of life on both sides and this DVD shows the tradegy of war with no punches pulled. There are interviews with seamen on both sides which add enormously to the impact of the program. I would recommend this DVD to anyone with an interest in history."
Very interesting

"I think that this dvd gives good insight into the hearts and minds of those who braved the frigid waters,and share with us their memories. I would recommend this to anyone interested in the war."

"Probably as trueful picture as can be shown of German underseas warfare. Scenes were very authenic. It is just another historical insight to WWII.
Very well done.
