Fine movie about the U boat war off the Eastern US during WW 1
It was definitely about WW 1 because one of the ships sunk was sunk off Long Island in 1918. The USS San Diego was cruising 10 miles off Fire Island, NY in July of 1918 when it struck a mine that was laid by German U Boat 117 . It sank bow first with the loss of 5 or 6 men . The rest of the crew rowed ashore to Long Island and were saved. It was over 500 feet long and it was the only US Capital ship sunk during WW 1. The movie shows the San Diego hitting the mine and blowing up. I have never seen a movie that mentioned the San Diego sinking.
If you know anything about the U boat war off the Eastern US during WW 1 this movie makes sense. They used the 110 foot sub-chasers the Navy had built to fight the U boats near shore. They showed schooners being attacked on the surface by the U boats , many schooners were sunk with deckguns up and down the US east coast during WW 1.
A very nice movie , the acting was pretty good and the story was good too.
