There was no destroyer named the USS Logan during WWII. The only WWII ship with that name had the designation APA-196 (hull PA-196), which was a Haskell-class attack transport. They were designed to transport 1,500 troops and their combat equipment, and land them on hostile shores with the ships' integral landing craft. See more »
I have always been fascinated by war movies, and in the past few years I have seen U-571 a thousand times. When I first started to watch this film, I thought it was going to be another one of those movies were the Germans are shown as baby eating monsters, who without proper instruction might put their shoes on the wrong feet. However, this movie was shown to what I would believe to be true. The director showed that not only the Germans were destructible, but the Americans were too. This movie showed that the Americans were also human, and they could be destroyed.
I can honestly say this is the best War movie I have ever seen.
