The gripping tale of the campaign that ultimately determined the outcome of the Second World War.
The Battle of the Atlantic -- the longest campaign of the Second World War and the most destructive naval campaign in all history -- was crucial to the Allied victory.
If the German U-boats had prevailed, the maritime artery across the Atlantic would have been severed. Mass hunger would have consumed Britain, and the Allied armies would have been prevented from joining in the invasion of Europe. There would have been no D-Day.
From senior members of the competing High Commands in London, Washington, Berlin and Moscow down to the humblest sailor, The Battle of the Atlantic tells the epic story of the decisions that led to victory, and the horror and humanity endured in those perilous seas.
