Description World War II historian Nigel Graddon chronicles a number of mysterious U-Boat missions that took place both during and after the war. He details the strange landing of U-33 in Scotland in 1940, which involved the top-secret Enigma encoding device. He then looks at other special U-Boat missions that covered a wide range of the astonishing activities of the Third Reich: U-Boat trips to Antarctica, curious cargoes of liquid mercury, the journey of the Spear of Destiny, the "Black Subs" and more.

  • Learn the amazing story of U-33 and how the Enigma device was kept secret for decades by the British military.
