The Hunley
23 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even though I was only 9 years old when I viewed this show, I still recall the tension and terror of the Hunley crew that the episode was able to convey. This production did an incredible job depicting the sweaty, struggling crew members turning the crank that drove the submersible's propeller. The episode also brings out another poignant yet terrifying aspect of the whole Hunley operation: the crew was out at sea, at night, with CANDLE power as the only source of light. Thus, again, the episode brought forth these particular little aspects of the Hunley, its crew and its mission that, when it is all put together, go a long way to show not just how tough the mission was but also how the desperate situation of the South drove the men to even take this chance with the Hunley opertion. Great viewing.
