Abstract

This classic war film tells the story of a German U-Boat crew during the Battle of the Atlantic in World War II. Presenting the crew as ordinary men, some embittered by and some new to war, director Wolfgang Petersen presents a claustrophobic depiction of war as the crew try to evade the British fleet and Royal Air Force and desperately hold onto the reasons for why they fight.
