Storyline

In 1941, the British Admiralty is worried about the large number of Allied ships being destroyed in the Pacific Ocean by a mysterious enemy vessel. Initially, British Admiral Russell suspects that a German submarine is the culprit. However, the few revealed pieces of the mystery puzzle rather point to a German Navy surface warship.The British don't know it yet but the enemy ship in question is the German Navy raider Atlantis commanded by Captain Reger.His success in sneaking upon unsuspecting enemy vessels is due in large part on Atlantis' ability to disguise itself in a benign, non-combatant, neutral ship.To achieve this ruse, the Atlantis uses props, camouflage, paint, fake foreign flags and even theatrical costumes for its crew to make itself appear something it's not.When Atlantis is close to its prey, it reveals its true identity and opens fire sinking the duped victim. Finally realizing the truth, British Admiral Russell decides to set traps in order to persuade Atlantis to ... Written by nufs68

Trivia

According to Mylène Demongeot in her memoirs, Charles Laughton arrived from London on the set of this film to perform his role, and the director told him how to play the character. But, instead to obey to what the director said, Laughton told him where to put the camera. And that's the director who finally did obey to Laughton's orders. See more »

Goofs

Although this movie is supposed to be based on fact, the scene in which the spy breaks into the Germany Navy code room is fiction. In fact, the British code breakers at Bletchley Park had already broken the German codes and knew how to pinpoint Atlantis. However, to keep the Germans from knowing that the British had broken their codes, various cover stories were invented during the war. This error is not the fault of the film makers as this information was revealed to the general public until 1974, 14 years after this movie was made. See more »

I am a WWII collector fan.,owning over 700 movies.,many dealing with this subject.

Under Ten Flags..Is in my opinion one of the best acted and directed movies dealing with world war II. It depicts a man's duty to country.. his personal honor to himself in up-holding honest and humanitarian beliefs even when required to do his duty and kill the enemy. The lead is by veteran actor Van Heflin.,who plays the captain of the German Raider "Atlantis".,this is based on a true story and facts of the german surface raider "Pacas" during world war two. This type of war movie needs to be returned to the screen to show our younger generation that although war is brutal and even unavoidable man can still win or lose with dignity and honour. I would like to see this movie made available on Video and returned to TV.
