Synopsis: The history of weapons and warfare is usually written from the point of view of the battles fought and the tactics used. In naval warfare, in particular, the story of how these weapons were invented, designed and supplied is seldom told. Chris Henry, in this pioneering study, sets the record straight. He describes how, to counter the extraordinary threat posed by the U-boats in the world wars, the Royal Navy responded with weapons that kept open the vital supply routes of the Atlantic Ocean. He also celebrates the remarkable achievements of the engineers and inventors whose inspired work was essential to Britain's survival.

About the Author: Chris Henry has pursued a career in military museums since 1991. He first worked at the Tower of London, Curator of Artillery at the Royal Armouries Fort Nelson in Portsmouth, head of collections at the Royal Artillery Museum in Woolwich and director of the Museum of Naval Firepower in Gosport. He is now director of the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses at Fraserburgh. His many publications include: The Battle of the Ebro, The Battle of the Coral Sea, Shield of Empire, British Napoleonic Field Artillery, British Napoleonic Siege and Coastal Artillery, The 25 Pounder Field Gun and Napoleonic Naval Armaments.
