Documentary Review: Secrets of the Third Reich: The Ghost of U-513

I don't see how this film is included under the title of "Secrets of the Third Reich" as there are no secrets here.  However the film does look at the war against submarines off the coast of Brazil.  Brazil was a major supplier of rubber for the Allies during the war, and Brazil actually was one of the Allies.  This submarine had scored six kills off the coast of Brazil.  It submarine was caught on the surface, and sunk by an airplane.  46 men died and there were seven survivors, including the Captain.
A Brazilian industrialist heard of the sinking, and decided to find the boat.  It was discovered in 2011.
