Description
Of all the threats that faced his country in World War II, Winston Churchill said, the German U-boat campaign was "the only thing that ever really frightened me ... this shapeless, measureless peril, expressed in charts, curves, and statistics" that determined whether supply ships could get through to England. The Battle of the Atlantic ran continuously from 1939 to Germany's surrender in 1945, at the cost of nearly 4500 ships and submarines and more than 100,000 lives. Inspired by the collection of letters that his father sent his mother from the destroyer escort he served aboard, Richard Snow charts this longest and most crucial campaign of the war in Europe.

"By way of a great raft of sea stories, each impeccably told and perfectly turned, Richard Snow has transformed the faraway and half-forgotten world of the Atlantic convoys into a narrative as touching and exciting as it is melancholy and memorable. This is a valuable book: few better accounts have ever been crafted about this cruelest of wars, fought for year after year on the most imperturbably cruel of the world's great oceans."—Simon Winchester
