Submarine Chasers of the U.S. Navy



Among the strategies for dealing with the U-boat threat to U.S. shipping was a series of small vessels, designed to be built cheaply and quickly, and optimized to find and hunt submarines. The sub chasers were small, but ended up playing out-sized roles along the coasts of the United States and around the world. The History Guy tells the forgotten story of the submarine chasers of the U.S. Navy.

Voted The Most Realistic American Submarine Movie



I made this one hour primetime television special in 1986. At the time, it was a big deal for the American Navy to let me on one of their submarines. I loved the experience and the submariners. This documentary won the Blue Ribbon at the American Film Festival. In my opinion what makes this so realistic is the everyday life submariners experienced and how when they trusted me and the crew, they let me record how things were when no one was watching. I was impressed with how professional they were and how, though underwater for months at a time, they treated each other decently and with respect. It takes a certain kind of person to be a submariner and I have deep respect for their professionalism and their patriotism. I know from so many who have commented on this video that to some extent, life on board a submarine has changed. For example there is no smoking cigarettes for sure. But in other ways, the life on board a Boomer or and attack sub isn’t all that different from what is shown here.

As I am an independent filmmaker, I make a portion of my living from selling copies of my films but I have decided, given the number of requests that I have had from ex-Navy men and women, to put the entire film up on YouTube. Please like this if you find watching it of value to you. #submarine #navy #sub #steelboats #attacksub #boomer
