Story of the pursuit of a German battleship in one of the most gripping episodes of the Second World War.

November 1939, ten days before the start of World War II, Graf Spee--a famed German warship captained by Hans Langsdorff (Peter Finch)--wages a brutal attack on Allied merchant shipping vessels in the South Atlantic.

After the last defeated Allied craft manages to radio its coordinates moments before sinking, British naval forces begin playing a cat-and-mouse game with the feared German warship, leading to Langsdorff and his crew's forced hide-out in Montevideo.

Directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, the film is notable for its amazing sea battles--made possible by, among others, the co-operation of the Admiralty, The Royal Navy and The US Navy--and for its non-stereotypical depiction of characters on both sides of the war.
