9781844150472: The War in the Mediterranean, 1940-1943

An acknowledged expert on World War II naval matters and the author of twenty-five books, Bernard Ireland examines the thousand-day battle between Allied and Axis forces for domination of the North African shores. His book offers graphic accounts of the stirring action as each side, realizing the consequences of defeat, struggled to control the Mediterranean and maintain their seaborne supply chain. Ireland brings fresh clarity to the complexities and factors at play during this critical period of the war.

About the Author:

Bernard Ireland has written may books on warships and naval including War at Sea 1897-1997, Battleships of the 20th Century, The Mediterranean Campaign 1940-1943, Cruisers and Warships of World War II.

From Booklist:

Ireland's modest monograph, a popular but sound piece of military history, covers the war in the Mediterranean from Italy's declaration of war in 1940 to the surrender of the last Axis forces in Tunisia in May_ 1943. The orientation is primarily British and justifiably so, since the period covered was a time and the theater of action a place in which the British bore the lion's share of the burden. Ireland also emphasizes the naval side of the campaign, again justly, for the single most critical victory lay in the Royal Navy's ability to keep open supply lines to Malta, which accomplishment facilitated fatal damage to the supply lines to Axis ground forces. Ireland's successful effort to cover a large territory fairly compactly makes for a worthwhile addition to most World War II collections. Roland Green
