The WW II experiences of a German U-boat commander, Gunther Prien (Eppler), are brought to the screen as he becomes a hero for an attack on a Scottish bay that resulted in the destruction of a battleship and the safe retreat of his submarine. The British soon retaliate, however, and his
U-boat is eventually sunk. He is taken prisoner by the English, whose ship is sunk by another German submarine, which, in turn, is sunk by a British airplane. Far more sinkings than dramatic moments. First released in Germany in 1958.
