U-Boat War 2001

U-Boat War: This is a set of 3 documentaries covering the U-boats impact in WWII, from beginning to end. It is well-written, and supplemented with interviews with American, British, and German survivors (and also historians) as well as a good amount of archival footage. It is really interesting to hear the story from those who were there -- including a number of German U-boat commanders. The breadth of coverage is good, including both German and Allied tactics (and how these tactics changed during the war), as well as technical advances on both sides. Coverage also includes developments in the Allies ability to read the German naval code. I think the most valuable thing it does is provide the human story without demonizing the German sailors.
