Martin Middlebrook has written some of the greatest classics in military history, covering major turning points in the two World Wars. Here, using extensive primary research, he follows the Battle of the Atlantic from the perspective of two convoys eastbound from the U.S. in 1942. A detailed blow-by-blow record of the perilous crossing captures the danger as the vital convoys face U-Boat wolf packs. On-board accounts reveal what it was like as torpedoes hit, boats sank, men were rescued, and submarines went on the hunt.
