Summary

During the May-June 2013 maritime archeological survey of the Soviet tanker Ashkhabad, three Battle of the Atlantic Research and Expedition Group videographers took over eight hours of high-definition video of the wreck site. This video documentary will combine historical photographs; wartime newsreel footage; photographic stills and video of the wreck; and interviews with key participants to provide a general overview of the Battle of the Atlantic on the North American East Coast, the attack on the Ashkhabad by the German submarine U-402, and conduct of the underwater archaeological survey itself.
