Great video with good photos from WWII. There are pictures never shown to anyone outside of Germany before. It tells the great story of the mighty u-boats destroying british shipping in the north atlantic. Alot of detail was but in the video. Great buy if you are into German submarines.

Any review of this one hour documentary needs to stress that its topic is not U-boats, contrary to the title, but the whole Kriegsmarine. As a result of the documentary’s short length, in combination with the too broad coverage of its topic, it unfortunately provides very rudimentary coverage of its topic. For anyone over the newbie the video really does not present anything of interest in terms of facts of analysis. However, the documentary does provide some footage that would be of interest. This footage seems to be from German propaganda films as opposed to from Kriegsmarine archives. Thus it looks impressive but probably does not show anything that those with an intermediate and above level of knowledge have not seen elsewhere. Thus for those with an intermediate or higher knowledge level this documentary would rate a 2 star.

For the newbie, however, this documentary does have some value, despite its very short and rudimentary nature. One important fact this documentary makes is that the German capital ships did not play much of a role (with the notable exception of tying down significant allied resources). It also makes the point that the main contribution made by the Kriegsmarine to the German war effort was made by its smaller vessels. This included not only the U-boats but also the wide variety and large number of other smaller vessels such as minesweepers, s-boats, etc. It also makes clear that the Kriegsmarine was relatively low on the totem pole in terms of resource priority.

With respect to weaknesses, for the newbie, unfortunately there are (too) many. These take the form of absences of analysis and discussion. This, in turn, is due to the very short length of the documentary.

A very light weight look at the U-Boat war. They tried to jam too much information into the amount of space they had. I will not be purchasing any other of the books in this series.
