Description by OLDIES.com:

With the defeat at Stalingrad, the belated need for total mobilization was accepted by Hitler and the slack in German productive capacity was taken up in an attempt to produce the equipment needed to service a wider and much longer war. A new program for increased production was introduced - 27 Type VII boats a month by the end of 1943. However, it was already too late for the U-boat arm, for the allies had moved to close the gap. Large numbers of long-range aircraft, new radar, new weapons and new tactics served only to raise U-boat losses in the Atlantic after mid-1943. This final chapter of the 'Grey Wolves' war is told with fascinating footage covering all aspects of this story. It ends with film of the one man 'Biber' submarine, and the arrest of Doenitz in 1945 - Hitler's nominated successor and Germany's last Fuehrer!

Product Description:

This documentary details the end of the Atlantic naval war, which signaled Hitler's defeat and the close of WWII. The deadly U-boat submarines had ceased to present such a deadly nemesis for the British fleet, though the production of the one-man Biber subs by the German Army could have presented a serious threat if the war had continued. These vicious little subs are examined, and the downfall of U-boat mastermind Karl Doenitz is chronicled. Doenitz succeeded Hitler as the titular head of Germany, serving for two weeks before his arrest for war crimes, representing the war's finality in 1945.
