The fifty-man allied submarine seen at the start of the movie was called the Gauntlet. The name of the German battleship also seen during the opening and later was called the 'Lindendorf'. See more »
Throughout the early portion of the movie the X craft program is referred to as "Top Secret". At this point in time, the British used the term "Most Secret", Top Secret being an American term. See more »
This movie is another one not to bother with. I prefer my historical movies as accurate as possible as reality is usually more dramatic and entertaining than hokeyness. There was an X-craft squadron, they did train rigorously for a raid against the Tirpitz (the movie calls it the Lindendorff-why fictionalize it?), they almost succeeded, the did penetrate the Tirpitz's defenses, damaged it badly enough that it could never sail at full speed again. Why not pay tribute to these brave men who fought for our freedom by telling their story straight? And the special effects are cheesy-the ships look like the models I built as a kid in the 1960s.
