Tom Hanks’ Greyhound Storyline
Tom Hanks is Captain Ernest Krause of a US destroyer and is leading 37 Allied ships to rain down hell upon the Nazi submarines. After he is done praying for the journey in front, he confides in the crew of the Greyhound that this is going to be his first time crossing the Atlantic ocean. What a jolt of confidence for the soldiers heading on a mission with their life in their hands right? Not only that but having the ruthless Nazis on their tail as well. While on patrol one day the Nazis ambush the good guys and the dreaded naval war begins. However, under the leadership of the Greyhound’s Captain, Tom Hanks, they manage to destroy a Nazi submarine. Faith in the Captain is restored and the soldiers rejoice.
