This is a very well researched and written book that tells the story of the Battle of the Atlantic, although written from the English perspective, it includes the efforts by Winston Churchill to engage President Roosevelt into the conflict knowing that public opinion would not allow full engagement, many of the documents and battle plans of the German navy, and the eventual actions by the Allies that changed the course of the battle extending from the Arctic ocean through the Mediterranean Sea, and ultimately the entire Atlantic ocean. Great addition to the Tulsa Library system.
