This summer, PBS will take audiences beneath the waves in an eye-opening new episode of NOVA.
PBS Distribution will release NOVA: Nazi Attack on America on Tuesday, July 14th. The story presented in this episode of the network’s hit science-based series follows Robert Ballard’s attempts to unravel the mystery around the sinking of the German U-boat U-166. The sub was one of many that lurked right off of America’s coast in the early days of WWII as part of what German forces dubbed “Operation Drumbeat.” For more than seventy years, the sub has remained so controversial because no proof could be obtained to prove whether or not the naval officer believed by many–including his own family–to have sunk the sub was truly responsible for its demise and that of its crew. Ballard, who is best known for discovering the final resting place of the doomed ship Titanic, takes the NOVA and National Geographic teams beneath the waves in order to try and solve the mystery of U-166’s fate in hopes of bringing honor to the officer and re-writing one more chapter of WWII history.
NOVA: Nazi Attack on America will be available Tuesday, July 14th on DVD and via digital download. It will retail for MSRP of $24.99 and can even be ordered online direct from PBS’ online store at http://www.shoppbs.org/product/index.jsp?productId=61808026&cp=&kw=nova+nazi+attack+on+america&origkw=NOVA+Nazi+Attack+on+America&sr=1.
