The Boat (2018)
Sky Deutschland - 60 mins - TheTVDB, IMDB
The story begins in the fall of 1942, at a time when, in the midst of World War II, submarine warfare was becoming ever more brutal. The plot follows a young submarine crew on a dangerous surveillance mission, as the Résistance begins to gain influence at the French port of La Rochelle. This new eight-part series is a sequel set immediately after the events depicted in the best-selling novel by Lothar-Gunther Buchheim and Wolfgang Petersen's 1981 Oscar-nominated film. Through it all, Buchheim's original message remains as relevant today as ever: blind fanaticism pushes young men into pointless war.
