NS-Kriegsfilm: Eine deutsche U-Boot-Besatzung wird aus dem kurzen Urlaub in einen neuen Einsatz gerufen. Das deutsche Boot zerstört einen holländischen Frachter, der Kriegsmaterial geladen hat, aber englische Schiffe tauchen auf und zwingen die Deutschen zu einem schnellen Tauchmanöver. Obwohl vier Kameraden von den Engländern gefangen genommen werden, beschließt der Kommandant, die englische Flotte zu torpedieren. Siegreich kehren die Deutschen in die Heimat zurück, bereit für den nächsten Kriegseinsatz.

This movie was shot on real u-boats (most of them are Type II and IX/B) and used a lot of real U-Boat crewmen as actors. The movie depicts the personal problems, hopes and fears of the crew. But it also deals with what they were there to do: sink ships and kill people. The enemy, in this movie the Englishman, is, surprisingly, fairly represented.

SOME TRIVIA: The maximum diving depth of 80 meters shown in the movie is incorrect. A type IX/B-boat was able to go down 230 meters and sometimes 260 meters or even more! It was limited to 80 meters in the movie because the real diving depth of the German submarines was kept a secret during the War.

IN GERMAN WITH HARD-ENCODED, ENGLISH SUBTITLES.  APPROX. 97 MINS. TOTAL.  EXCELLENT QUALITY  (see video samples!):
