Publisher Comments:

Naval Warfare played a decisive role in deciding World War II. In this new study, naval historian Bernard Ireland reveals the critical elements that determined the war at sea. He investigates how German U-boats came perilously close to snapping Britain's Atlantic lifeline, and why the submarines were eventually defeated. By contrast, America submarines inflicted such devastating losses on Japanese merchant shipping that the Japanese war economy collapsed. In Europe and the Pacific, the Allies had to develop new techniques of amphibious warfare if they were to defeat their opponents. Airpower came to dominate the naval war: growing from a useful adjunct to fleet operations, it became a decisive weapon in itself, relegating the great battleships to subordinate roles. Airpower, convoys, amphibious assaults and submarine operations: these were the vital areas of the naval war. Failure in any one element would mean losing the war.

Naval historian Bernard Ireland offers new insights to the conflict, investigating how German U-boats ultimately lost the battle of the Atlantic while US submarines annihiliated Japan's merchant navy.

Dear Bernar, thiscomment is really about your book on
aircraft carriers, in particular HMS Centaur, I am not
being 'picky' but a couple of your staements aren't quite
correct.
HMS Centaur was a Hermes class carrier, commissioned
in Belfast in 1953. Her planes were Avengers, Sea Furies
and the famous 'Ace of Diamonds' squadron of Sea Hawks.
After sea trials the Centaur entered Portsmouth Dockyard and during the next six months was fitted with
the worlds first 'Angled Deck' system, after trials we were sent out to the Med, where Lord Louis Mountbatten
kept us there for 6 months to show us off to the Yanks,
returning to the UK in August 1955. I know because I
was there and I have pictures to prove it.

Regards Richard Sims.
