The Battle of the Atlantic was a fight for Britain's very survival. From 1939-1942, Hitler's submarines threatened to starve Britain into submission by preventing ships from carrying food, raw materials, troops and their equipment from North America. By 1942, just a handful of U-boats had brought Britain to the brink of defeat. As the tables turned in the struggle for control of the Atlantic's "saltwater highways," over 85% of U-boat crews would lose their lives. Through eyewitness accounts, dramatic reconstructions and a wealth of archive material, the compelling story unfolds of the longest and one of the most bitterly fought campaigns of World War II.

An excellent documentary; I have watched Das Boot and the Imitation Game movies; compared to them, this documentary is even more exciting as it is authentic and true. Highly recommended.
