German submarine UB-35 leaves port on mission during World War I

Early slates allude to failed attempts at peaceful resolution of issues between Germany and England, in World War 1, and the Kaiser's consequent decision on February 1, 1917, to intensify German submarine warfare against Britain. Slate refers to Churchill's admitted concerns expressed in the "Sunday Pictorial," about the resulting constraint on England's control of the seas around the British Isles, referring to the U-boats creating a magic girdle (Magischen Gurtel) around England, which becomes the title for the film. In the first part, Captain, Lothar von Arnauld de la Periere of the German submarine UB-35, stands in a skiff as he is rowed out to his submarine. He exchanges salutes with his officers, as he boards the U-35, nestled against a German ship. He gives the order to cast off the lines and proceed half power in reverse. The crew scrambles to get underway. German sailors on the nearby ship watch from her railings. Sailors use a long pole to help move the submarine away from the ship. Officers and men on the ship wave as the U-boat pulls away. Views from the submarine deck as it moves on the surface of the water heading toward the Mediterranean Sea.
