Silent War: Battles Beneath the Sea

Silent War: Battles Beneath the Sea

$15.00
For the second half of the 20th century, the world’s most powerful nations were engaged in an intense struggle for political and territorial supremacy. As the USA and the USSR developed huge arsenals of nuclear weapons, they and their allies would regularly bring the world close to annihilation, yet – incredibly – these highly dangerous military stand-offs often happened in total secrecy: underwater. This eye-opening two-part series tells the compelling story of US, UK and Russian submarine warfare. Filled with revelatory first-hand testimony, it gives unprecedented insight into the pressures of life aboard these deadly machines and uses impressionistic reconstructions and archive to bring to life the underwater chases and espionage operations that took the world to the brink of nuclear war.

Silent War
This was an excellent DVD talking about US/UK/USSR submarines in the Cold War. Several commentators were ex-submariners from all 3 Navies talking about the under-sea capabilities of each.
