The Battle Of The Atlantic

By Jonathan Dimbleby

An unputdownable and gripping account of a deadly conflict in a vast, trackless ocean that could so nearly have ended Britain’s hopes of winning the Second World War – made even more enthralling by the author’s constant referral to German archive material.

The book tackles the events related to the dramatic Battle of the Atlantic, the longest military campaign of WW2, which ran from 1939 until Germany surrendered in 1945. The conflict over the dominion of the sea was crucial to Britain’s survival, and in Jonathan Dimbleby’s account, military history is complemented by the stories of the men who fought in the war and their families.
