Abstract:

This book tells the story of those nerve racking days between September 1939 and May 1943, when allied merchantmen battled relentlessly against superior German U-boats for mastery of the ocean routes. At first the conflict was dominated by the Germans. Their torpedoes and mines blew up millions of tons of British shipping, and thosands of lives were lost. Slowly the tide turned in favour of the British - asdic and radar were developed, ships, minesweepers and escort carriers were built in steadily increasing numbers. But, in the end, it was the selfless courage of the seamen, who continued to fight when all seemed lost, which really won the Battle of the Atlantic.
