Nit: It was a US, not German, sub.

There was also a short story by Lovecraft called "The Temple" set on a U-boat in WWI, but I think it could easily be ported to WWII.

For that matter, _The Land That Time Forgot_ could be moved to (early) in WWII probably.

*tch* I saw an Amazon listing for it, but overlooked that it was VHS. I do see some copies on ebay... homemade, I presume.

Another chance to taut Dagonbytes, which has the story online.

The Secret Glory- This film is a documentary treatment of the story of grail scholar Otto Rahn and his involvement with the Nazi party, which ultimately led to his (probable) suicide. The cinematic style, which is heavily focused on creating a sense of eeriness, may be off putting for some, but I think that it is a well done film overall, on a topic where it is difficult to get ready access to a very much information.

I watched a flick called Outpost this evening. It's a so-so film, but it would make a great RPG scenario. If you want a quick Nazi zombie game, I recommend cribbing the plot and setup from this one.
