Pre "Das Boot" Film. This movie is as authentic as it gets
22 August 2002 | by cherubim2See all my reviews

This film was made with lots of input from guys who lived it. Most of the "trick photography" is real footage. The movie conveys the true difference between Soldiers and Naziâ?Ts and in a German viewpoint without showing them as the usual jack booted idiots.

Highly recommended.
