A daring- at the time-re-examination of World War II's most perilous phase, the mass attack of the U-boat. The little-known Tenth Fleet of the U.S.Navy was a phantom force. At the beginning of World War II, they had little more than brain power with which to face Nazi power. In an unprecendented departure from all die-hard convention, the Tenth Fleet paved the only way to victory at sea and caused a reappraisal of naval thinking. This account is taken wholly from documented naval records and draws upon the author's personal experience. xv, 366 pages, with Acknowledgments, Bibliography, Glossary and Abbreviations, Notes, Index of Names, and Index of Vessels. 6.25 x 9.5 inches.
