-- From the back cover
It was probably the most important battle of the Second World War and would bring the front lines to the vary shores of Canada. In the end, the German attempt to stem the vital trans-Atlantic flow of men and supplies to Britain would cost the Allies more than 2,600 merchant ships, 30,000 merchant seamen’s lives, 5,000 aircrew, and about 2,500 aircraft.
Telling the story from the perspective of both sides, Spencer Dunmore traces the complete history of this momentous battle, giving equal time to all aspects of the conflict: in the air, on the water, and below its surface. He follows the action from the earliest days, when surface raiders were considered the greatest danger at sea, through the heyday of the U-boats, and takes us behind the scenes to encounter the politicians, the strategists, and the brilliant Enigma code-breakers.
