Storyline

A British ship is sunk after an engagement with a German vessel, and the survivors are picked up by the German ship, which has been damaged. When it pulls into the bay of a deserted island to make repairs, one of the British survivors, Seaman Brown, steals a rifle and escapes from the ship, his plan being to try picking off the crew from various spots on the island and delay the ship's repairs long enough for a British vessel to arrive and give battle.

a marvelous setting degraded by an boy scout's story
28 September 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A truly splendid idea: make a film about World War I, in the film-lookouts that were fashionable one hundred years ago. In this respect 'Forever England' is marvelous.

But unfortunately this film's plot provides us with the usual cheap stuff about the English, coming out superior against a bunch of slightly retarded Germans. This below-level picture is aggravated by the extensive use of boy scout-morals, insulting your common sense.

The reality from World War I was far different: a grim & merciless struggle. In the end Germany was defeated because its opponents England and France were greatly supported by the USA. Before this American intervention, England's superior navy deadlocked Germany's superior army.
