Road to Berlin

About this item


This film focuses on the many aspects of the wartime production and supply dissemination "chain", from creating goods to navigating the dangerous delivery of shipments. "A Nazi submarine 'wolf pack' racing to intercept a convoy carrying urgently needed supplies - and the race against time by those who handle these supplies and load the convoy - furnish the dramatic elements in this film. The picture brings out the importance of the many jobs, both big and small, performed by men and women who are vital links in the life line to the front and whose war work has received little publicity or praise."
