A long awaited DVD only now available, previously only available on VHS. An excellent film, realistic and exciting drama telling the story of the Battle of the Atlantic. The film follows the crew of the Royal Navy Cruiser, HMS Apollo as she departs for her tour doing escort duties in the North Sea.Many of the scenes were filmed under wartime conditions and as to drama of this film. A must see film for those who like a film to be a true depicition of life in the Royal Navy during the war. The film also embodies the true British spirit that was so evident at the time our country was almost on its knees. It leaves you feeling it's great to be British.
