The Grey Wolves is 2007 documentary about the German Navy’s submarines in World War II.
Kaiser Wilhelm the 2nd of Germany had long desired to rule an empire. He thought that Germany needed a powerful Navy to protect it – especially against Britain. The German Navy was set to the ultimate test – war against Great Britain, putting their mighty fleet to good use. They began a naval blockade of Germany during the first days of the war and deployed their naval units.
At the outset of World War I, German U-boats, though numbering only 38, achieved notable successes against British warships. By the end of the war Germany had built 334 U-boats and had 226 under construction. The Armistice terms of 1918 required Germany to surrender all its U-boats, and the Treaty of Versailles forbade it to possess them in the future.
