The War For The Seas: A Maritime History Of World War II
- World War II
A deep dive into the tides of war
The battle for control of the seas was crucial to determining the outcome of the Second World War. But how, facing the supremely effective German war machine, could Britain, the US and their allies successfully block the enemy at sea?
In this richly detailed account of wartime sea power, Evan Mawdsley traces events from the first German U boat operations in September 1939 through to the surrender of the last U boats in May 1945. Covering all the major battles in the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans, War for the Seas surveys the efforts of sea powers both major and minor. Mawdsley also discusses the role of individual leaders, logistics and intelligence—providing a host of new insights into the epic struggle to defeat the Axis powers.
