* HopeSpot: In "Hitler's Lost Sub," the divers find a knife inscribed with a crewman's name, giving them the real possibility of identifying the wreck. However, when they visit the U-boat archives, they find that the crewman was on a boat that sank off of Africa instead of New Jersey, forcing them to disregard this clue. Fortunately, they are later vindicated when they do identify the wreck, finding it is the same boat that had been directed to New Jersey but never received the new orders for Africa.

* ShootTheShaggyDog: [[http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/military/hitlers-supergun.html "Bombing Hitler's Supergun"]]. Joe Kennedy Jr. (UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy's older brother) attempts to fly a remote-controlled bomb into the WaveMotionGun to destroy it, but an electrical fault causes the plane to explode in midair before he can bail out of it as planned. Allied troops reach the supergun site a month later to discover that an earlier British bombing attack had already destroyed the site.

* HopelessWar: Discussed at length in [[http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/lostsub/ "Hitler's Lost Sub"]]. The latter half of the documentary discusses the downfall of the U-boat Force against the Allies and their hopelessly staggering casualty rate, which resulted in only 1 out of every 4 German crewmen returning home. One U-boat veteran even recalls something his flotilla chief said as they left on patrol: "Never mind sinking ships. Just come back, please."
