Riveting documentary on a nearly forgotten topic
31 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

"Convoy" is probably the best WWII documentary I've ever seen, and I've seen nearly all of them. After watching about half of episode one, I was hooked, and quickly gobbled up the other three. This series was more compelling than most fiction! The fact all of these events actually transpired just makes it more so. Will the allies finally have the edge in this battle? Will the U-boats ever be stopped?

Even the most ardent WWII enthusiast will learn a shipping ton of new facts about this crucial part of the war. And the non-enthusiast who simply likes the war genre will find the effects, footage, and characters captivating. To boot, the series could almost be PG-rated as there is no gore or direct visual bodily violence; a plus for some. That said, there's plenty of explosions and destruction, but like many things naval, you miss the trees for the forest.

However, the human side is not lost, as interspersed throughout are myriad snippets from interviews with survivors from all sides of the conflict. Their stories are intriguing: what I wouldn't give to sit down and chat with them for a few hours!

For sure Convoy has a Canadian slant, being Canadian-produced. However, unlike some Canadian productions, they don't falsely play up the Canadian contribution to a cheesy level. The Canadian and British contributions to the Atlantic Ocean war are clear to see for all who seek out and watch Convoy. Los!
