• Short Summary

    US merchant ships take food to UK + cine camera footage of U-boat attack.

  • Description

    Title reads: "U-boat offensive fails".

    United States of America (USA).

    High angled L/S of large marshalling yard in North America. Various shots of American food supplies being loaded into holds of merchant ships for transport to Britain. Various C/Us of merchant navy officers.
