Having watched the original 5-hour movie, multiple times, they will have to make this series non-politically correct and have no Somali-Deutschers serving aboard the boat, to gain traction with me.


Does anyone think that the KapitainLeutnant is perhaps ... just perhaps? ... a little too young for the part?

I don’t know how old is the one in this movie, but they were young indeed.
In the original Das Boot book by Lothar Buchheim the kaleun was around 30 if i recall well, but in the movie the actor seemed more around 40...

But some as Lehmann were younger (28 in 1939)
Prien was 31 in 1939...
As the war was going on, and with the losses, the olders were gone (sunk) and the recruitment was among young blood i believe

Yes, I understand that. Yet, the captain in the original movie was one of the "Old Guard" Indeed, he is called "Der Alte" (the Old Man) by his crew, and considers most of them to be just boys. According to the storyline, the Kapitanleutnent is 31 years old, as you have pointed out. The chief is supposed to be 27 years old.


Buchheim, who wrote the book, was disappointed with the movie (which was intended to be an anti-war movie). But before I knew anything about Buchheim's intentions, I recognized it as an anti-war film ... probably the greatest ever made.


I don't know how old the young man in the new series is (at my age, I begin to have problem with this!). But if he is about 30, and despite my reservations, he is the right age, according to Buchheim.

Found the younger U-Boat captain:

Ludwig Ferdinand Von Friedeburg, 20 years old when he took command of U-155 in august 44!
This guy died in 2010...

Hey. I am from germany and I saw all 4 episodes and I can tell you, they make the german very bad, like they had been in 40s. They took das Boot movie, added some Story in La Rochelle and make the Crew a Bit crazier. Love das Boot series pretty much.

Unfortunately they added a "modern politically correctness thematic" between 2 ladies. Had to skip several scenes. :-)
