Valkyrie: Riding Roughshod Over History?
Luke Turner , January 23rd, 2009 05:31

Das Boot
Scene of Battle: Battle of the Atlantic, World War Two

Behind Enemy Lines: Often regarded as one of the greatest war films ever made, Wolfgang Petersen's 1981 epic uses the inherent claustrophobia of submarine warfare to explore the hard, tense life on board U-96.

Trivia: Das Boot is one of the most expensive German films ever made.
