Summary
Jonathan Dimbleby's The Battle of the Atlantic offers a detailed and immersive account of this campaign, placing it within the context of the war as a whole. Dimbleby delves into the politics on both sides of the Atlantic, revealing the role of Bletchley Park and the complex and dynamic relationship between America and England. He uses contemporary diaries and letters from leaders and sailors to chilling effect, evoking the lives and experiences of those who fought the longest battle of World War Two. This is the definitive account of the Battle of the Atlantic
Summary
Though often overlooked, the Battle of the Atlantic was crucial to both sides. Had Germany succeeded in cutting off the supply of American ships, England would have likely not held out; the outcome of the war -- as well as the future of Europe and the world -- would have been remarkably different
