The Graf Spee, the Bismarck, the Scharnhorst, and the Gneissau were heavily armed German battleships that wreaked havoc on Atlantic shipping in the early stages of World War II. This is the story of outmanned British ships dealing with this threat, and the story is shown through both the German and the British perspectives. Good documentary-style film.
