While returning from a planning session in Scotland, Col. Gallagher's plane is shot down over the North Sea. He ends up in a rubber raft along with the only other survivor, Capt. Powell, a rich kid who happens to be a pilot Gallagher drummed out of the 918th because of a propensity to avoid danger. Now they wait out efforts by Allied rescue units to find them. Bad luck intervenes, however, and they are picked up by a German U-Boat. Surprisingly, Capt. Wessel, commander of the sub, treats them with gallantry and returns them to the island where he found them. Unfortunately, they soon discover that his intentions were far less than honorable as they become the bait in his trap. Written by Anonymous

Good Thriller -- Major Flaw
27 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is a well-constructed thriller, populated by nicely defined characters, all well played. But it has one or two major flaws in its central premise -- the first is that U-Boats were not supposed to primarily engage enemy warships, but were normally assigned to disrupt supply lines (i.e. tankers, supply ships etc.); the second is that no U-Boat commander on any mission would ever have wasted a torpedo (much less two torpedoes) on a fishing boat -- torpedoes were too valuable to use for such targets. They'd have surfaced and used their deck gun. On the basis of pure character study, however, the episode is well-written, and no better or worse than most of the second season episodes of this series, which is better than I remember it from the time in which it was on.
