The Second World War (3) the War at Sea (Essential Histories)by Philip D Grove
Synopses & Reviews
This volume provides a comprehensive guide to three major theatres of combat; the battles for the Atlantic, the war in the Mediterranean and the contest in the Indian Ocean. The war at sea was a vital contest, which if lost would have irreversibly altered the balance of the military forces on land. The sea lanes were the logistical arteries of British and subsequent Allied armies fighting on the three continents of Africa, Asia and Europe. The Second World War was ultimately won by land forces but it could always have been lost at sea.
The third in a set of six volumes on World War II, this work explores the war at sea. It offers comprehensive coverage of the war in the Mediterranean, Atlantic and Indian Oceans, including air strikes, sea engagements and convoy operations.
