Cold War was a time in which, seemingly, nothing was going on - both sides were building up their arsenals, improving their offensive and defensive capabilities, but there were no direct fires shot. But that was just the public side of the conflict - backstage Cold War was constant struggle, on both sides, not to go an inch too far and start the open conflict. But also it was constant struggle not to show your secrets or weaknesses, which lead to paranoia and situations like the one showed in K-19: The Widowmaker.

During World War 2 there were many small operations that perhaps were not very impressive, but vital to the whole outcome of war.

Dolph Lundgren is a household name for many reasons, but certainly not for making great movies - just like Jean-Claude Van Damme, Steven Seagal or Michael Dudikoff he became one of the icons of genre that can be described as on a verge between action flick and martial arts movies.

German such movies appealed to the patriotism, American were showing their brave soldiers doing the impossible things, the British productions were concentrating on the human aspect of the conflict - In Which We Serve, We Dive at Dawn or One of Our Aircraft is Missing were showing not how great the British army is, but rather on how the Britons or their allies are coping with the war. The Silver Fleet was no exception...

The 1950s and 1960s were the golden era for independent productions in United States - anyone with some money could have been director, producer or both (let’s not forget that greatest works of Ed Wood Jr were made in those times). Of course most of those productions were cheap scifi movies not really worth a second look, but war movies were a bit of a challenge for the amateur film makers - you actually need some sets and some models or war-era footage to show the action scenes.
