Several months after the U.S. entry into World War II, an inexperienced U.S. Navy commander must lead an Allied convoy being stalked by a German submarine wolf pack. Watch and find out how it all unfolds.
Based upon the old novel titled “The Good Shepherd” by C. S. Forester, Greyhound is the thrilling story of an Allied convoy crossing the North Atlantic in 1942 as it faces relentless attack by a German submarine wolf pack. The leader of the convoy’s destroyer screen is a US Navy commander making his first crossing of the Atlantic.
