The Battle of the Atlantic

Rating
New or Used: $4.94
The Battle of the Atlantic - the longest campaign of the Second World War and the most destructive naval campaign in all history - was crucial to the Allied victory. If the German U-boats had prevailed, the maritime artery across the Atlantic would have been severed. Mass hunger would have consumed Britain, and the Allied armies would have been prevented from joining in the invasion of Europe. There would have been no D-Day. From senior members of the competing High Commands in London, Washington, Berlin and Moscow down to the humblest sailor, The Battle of the Atlantic tells the epic story of the decisions that led to victory, and the horror and humanity endured in those perilous seas.

Reviews

Fascinating, thought-provoking and entertaining. Explodes a number of self-serving myths -- Andrew Roberts (on 'Destiny in the Desert: The Road to El Alamein') Fresh and provocative -- Peter Snow (on 'Destiny in the Desert') A wonderfully incisive, superbly written history. What Dimbleby has nailed so brilliantly is what so many war historians miss: the big picture -- Saul David (on 'Destiny in the Desert') Dimbleby expertly weaves dramatic events and the decisions and dilemmas of the great war leaders ... with real pace, drama and insight -- Dr Niall Barr (on 'Destiny in the Desert') Superbly paced and expressed -- Allan Mallinson (on 'Destiny in the Desert')
