I have just finished watching this program and found it quite disturbing in the sense that both sides of the war effort had so little regard for human life .
It might sound strange to say that in time of warfare when civilian casualties are rife on both sides ,however I think this is an exception.
Except for the courage and heroic efforts of the German Commander of the U-Boat who tried and helped so many people to survive.
His name should be Honored by all the nationalities he saved.
And I was appalled by the Americans who bombed the submarine on the surface of the water with a red cross flag in full view with civilians on deck and lifeboats in tow with many more civilians on board.
I think this was an exceptional incident in a time of war that both sides should have given way.
