In February 1945, one of the most dramatic chases in the history of naval warfare took place in the North Atlantic. The German submarine U-864 was loaded with the latest Messerschmitt jet engine parts and missile guidance systems and headed to Japan. But one of the Royal Navy's most advanced hunter submarines, the Venturer, already lay in wait at the Norwegian Coast. After a three-hour chase through the icy waters, the Venturer fired four torpedoes and sunk U-864. To hit a target that was submerged was a feat that had never been achieved in the history of submarine warfare. Timewatch examines U-864 final hours from both sides of the conflict and explores the dangers of the toxic wreck today.moreless
