In World War II, the greatest threat to the British Navy is the German battleship Tirpitz. Being anchored in a Norwegian fjord, it is impossible to attack it with any chance of success. But the Navy trains a special commando to attack it, using little submarines to plant underwater explosives under it.—Mattias Thuresson

Short Review

A competent World War II movie made only a decade after the end of the war. Told with little drama but a bit of cinematic flair, this is a solid film but it leaves the story half told.
