 Product Description

"Of all the branches of men in the forces there is none which shows more devotion and faces grimmer perils than the submariners." Winston Churchill

The Historic Submarine Documentary and Training Films collection features dozens of rare films made by and for the U.S. Navy. Found in forgotten archives and private collections, and painstakingly restored using digital technology, the films present a view of the U.S. submarine force as recruits, submariners and the public saw it during WWII and the Cold War era. Many of these films have never been seen before by the public and have only recently been declassified!

Features five rare films showcasing the Navy’s anti-submarine capabilities at the height of the Cold War. Includes technical descriptions of M.A.D. and FLIR detection systems, and shows the use of aircraft, surface warships and destroyers, and hunter-killer submarines in the ASW mission. In “To Catch a Shadow” learn how the co-ordination of Navy forces can result in the detection and destruction of enemy submarines. In “The Submariners” watch as the crew of the USS Shark engages in a deadly cat and mouse game with an enemy submarine, and scores a “kill”. In “Goblin at the Doorstep” and “The Hunter Killers” see Grumman P-3 Orion and Grumman Tracker aircraft as they sweep the seas for enemy boats. Finally in “Coordinated ASW” learn the tactics behind the ASW formations used by the fleet in combat situations. Films are color and black and white. Over 110 minutes of material. (Case artwork may vary.)
