Reviews

"With two authors such as Polmar and Whitman, readers are treated to a succinct, well-written historical assessment of the technical achievements in ASW. Each volume includes a series of page-length sidebar biographies of important personalities-usually flag-rank officers-whose great contributions, either operational or technical, advanced the field of ASW. These two books offer a textbook history of ASW development for historians as well as present-day military members." - Naval Aviation News "Norman Polmar and Edward Whitman have risen to the challenge in their second volume on ASW history, Hunters and Killers, Vol. 2: Anti-Submarine Warfare from 1943. Focusing on ASW warfare beginning with the turn of the tide in the Second World War and tracing key developments throughout the Cold War, they present an enjoyable study of technological innovation, personalities and events to capture the imagination." - The Northern Mariner
