The Atlantic Campaign


This very readable account begins interestingly enough with a brief overview of the war at sea during WWI. From there Van Der Vat covers the inter war years starting with the attempts to prevent another major naval arms race and the ultimate failure of that process in the early 1930s followed by re-armament and the outbreak of WWII. As you would expect the main bulk of the book concentrates on the Atlantic Campaign of WWII covering all of the major events and the tactics used in the course of this crucial campaign and how they helped influence the direction and its ultimate result
