"On January 18, 1942, in London, Winston Churchill gave the order to sink the Tirpitz, announcing that 'the whole strategy of the war turns at this point on this ship.' On November 12, 1944, at Tromsö, the Tirpitz sank with the loss of 700 lives. Between these two events stretches an epic story of courage and endeavor almost unequaled in the history of the last war. The Tirpitz, the most powerful enemy ship afloat in the Western Hemisphere, was based deep in the Norwegian fjords where it presented a major threat to Allied naval action."--Book Jacket

A bibliography of primary literature as well as some secondary sources follows each chapter, while an appendix provides information on magazines devoted to Africa's culture and Afro-American literature, and on literary statistics for sub-Saharan Africa, Afro-America, and translations of works into other languages.
