Hitler's Lost Battleship

About the Show

Ambushed in late 1939 by British cruisers off the coast of Uruguay, Hitler's prized 'pocket battleship' and hi-tech wonder, the Admiral Graf Spee, was blown up by its captain, Hans Langsdorff, who then committed suicide. This documentary retraces the events that led to the ship's destruction using re-enactments, CGI reconstructions and surprising findings by naval researchers that helped to shed light on this mystery.
