Submarine Warfare in the Pacific (Documentary, 1946, B&W, 40:00)This film was completed shortly after the end of the War and contains footage on US submarine operations you won't find anywhere else. There is a cameo appearance by Japanese Fleet Admiral Nagano who discusses (in English) the effect of US sub operations on the ability of the Japanese to make war. That because the "pig boats" inflicted military and transport losses on the enemy that were far beyond their own tiny numbers. The program is introduced by Vice Admiral Charles A. Lockwood, Jr, the legendary commander of Pacific submarine forces (COMSUBPAC) and narrated by Gene Kelly. The film is chocked full of dramatic footage shot on location by combat cameramen, including above and below surface actions and one of the Silent Service's most vital, but unsung, functions, the rescue of downed airmen in the combat zone. One of the highlights of the film is footage of Medal of Honor winner, Lt Commander George L. Street, leading an attack aboard "Submarine Warfare in the Pacific New This film was completed shortly after the end of the War and contains dramatic footage on US submarine operations you won't find anywhere else. See Tirante, Trigger and other subs in action along with their crews.
The Capture of U-505 (Documentary, B&W, 16:00) This film takes a look at the other side of the coin - World War II anti-submarine operations. In June, 1944, Task Force "Guadalcanal," commanded by
Captain Daniel V. Gallery, composed of the escort aircraft carrier USS Guadalcanal (CVE-60), and five destroyer escorts under the Commander Frederick S. Hall were on station off the Cape Verde Islands, where code intercepts placed German U-Boats. From the outset of the mission, Gallery made it his objective to capture a U-boat, intact, the first for the US Navy, so that it could be examined in detail by American intelligence. To that end, he developed specific tactics that led to the dramatic capture, on June 4th, of U-505, before she could be scuttled by here crew. How Gallery did it is the subject of this fascinating film that shows the operation as it happened. And fortunately for future generations, his actions had the unintended consequence of preserving
Plus the three memorable submarine episodes from the legendary "Victory at Sea" series with an award winning musical score by Richard Rogers. This series of documentaries was produced in 1952 entirely from archival footage from Allied and Axis World War II sources. In many cases the original films have long since been lost and only the clips that we see here have survived, making this a unique record.
Design for War: Battle of the Atlantic, 1939-1941 (B&W, 22:00) Hitler accelerates U-Boat production and unleashes his subs in the Atlantic. Captured German film shows U-Bot C--in-C Admiral Karl Donitz and leading U-Boat "aces" like top scorer GŁnther Prien (200,000 tons sunk) in action. The Germans defeat France and build concrete U-Boat pens along the Bay of Biscay. The Allies adopt a convey strategy and begin to build and prefect theri anti-subamarine forces.
Killers and the Killed: Victory in the Atlantic, 1943-1945 (B&W, 24:00) The Allies build a string of airbases around the Atlantic to extend air cover over convoys. Rare film of anti-submarine aircraft variants like the Lockheed Ventura, maritime versions of the B-24 Liberator, and the Martin PBM Mariner. The Allies seal the fate of the U-Boats by launching dozens of anti submarine "Jeep" CVE mini-escort carriers to cover the "mid-ocean gap" that can't be reached by land based aircraft.
Full Fathom Five The Road to Victory in the Pacific (B&W, 24:00) Excellent footage of how the US built trained and deployed it's submarines in the Pacific. Exciting action sequences of submarine attacks plus rare captured film of Japanese forces.
