"An outstanding piece of analysis, not only because of the synoptic view it gives of the extended North Atlantic campaign...but also for the lessons it contains for today's analysts. The most important lessons, I believe, are the need for thought in selecting appropriate measures of effectiveness and the criticality and time and cost in the measure/countermeasure process.... The major contribution is the modeling of the extended antisubmarine warfare campaign, with cycles of innovation and introduction of countermeasures on both sides. This is precisely the kind of extended competition we have been engaged in for the last several decades in many areas.... This should be one of your most useful and stimulating publications."
A.W. Marshall Director of Net Assessment Office of the Secretary of Defence
"An extremely original, well presented, and insightful history of the Allied campaign against German U-Boats in the North Atlantic... Mr. McCue's uncomplicated and innovative use of basic concepts and models from military operations research... for discussing this important World War II campaign is both novel and compelling."

Theodore A. Postol Professor of Science, Techonolgy and National Security Policy Massachusetts Institute of Technology

About the Author:

Brian McCue is a graduate of Hamilton College and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has worked as a defense analyst for twenty-five years, first in private industry; then in the Department of Defense, where he wrote U-Boats in the Bay of Biscay as a Senior Fellow at the National Defense University; then at the United State's Congress's Office of Technology Assessment; and now since 1996 as a Research Analyst at the Center for Naval Analyses.

Though his work has taken many forms, Dr. McCue says that what he likes best is "to match real-world data to quantitative formulations that make sense in terms of physical reality."
