Not my thing but if it is then this documentry is for you.
Whole thing seemed pointless to me. What's the importance is in risking lives & blowing millions to bring it up?...they should have the blueprints for it, isn't that enough?
Gave it a high rating because it is a well done & very detailed doc, despite the topic.

Very interesting. Learned a lot about the American Civil War and found the almost submarine, iron ships fascinating.

One of the best films I have seen in this year. It was entertaining and interesting. Great performances a must see for all. “Truly a really great movie worth the long library wait.”
