As helmed by documentarist Robin Williams, Mayday Tugs of War revisits the careers and wartime contributions of the WWII-era Deep Sea Rescue Tugmen. Though history has neglected to preserve their legacies sufficiently - rendering the group semi-obscure - the Tugmen nonetheless carried out the most powerful and successful assault during the war, dramatically slowed the progress of the Axis Forces, and saved untold numbers of military and civilian lives. Mayday Tugs of War creates one of the first full-scaled documentary tributes to the Tugmen, using rare archival footage to tell the chronological story of the group, from inception to battlefront action to disbandment. The story is replete with thrilling conflicts involving submarines, aircraft carriers, massive battleships, and a host of other wartime vehicles, yet predominantly, it posits itself as a tool for posterity, to help future generations remember the legacy of the Tugmen.
