Storyline

Documentary dramatic anthology about the U.S. Navy's submarine fleet. All stories were based on fact and the realism was heightened by actual use of combat footage from the files of the Navy. The stories were varied between the South Pacific during World War II and the Korean War. The series was the brainchild of Rear Admiral Thomas M. Dykers, who retired from the Navy in 1949 after 22 years service. The Navy loaned him the U.S.S. Sawfish for the filming of several episodes. Written by Anonymous

Well-Done Realism
15 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This series (which I found on YouTube) was well-done with its weaving of real WW2 action footage with scenes filmed onboard the loaner submarine they used. It makes you appreciate the valor of those who chose the silent service: cramped, dank, hot quarters; enduring unrelenting depth charge attacks; going without decent air and electricity; and paying the ultimate price of going down with all hands (over 50 boats did so in WW2). To think that men clamoured to be part of this elite service, knowing the dangers involved is a testimony to the backbone that once was present in our men and our culture. Having been done in the 50s, this series shows a military in which ladies provide a supporting role and men provide the combat presence. How refreshing to look back on a time when our society and military were more in sync with the Creators order.

Being a child of the 50s and a son of a WW2 combat veteran, I am proud to see what our military once stood for. Well done and a tribute to better times and a stronger nation.
