Hitler's U-Boat War: The Hunted, 1942-1945 (Modern Library War)

Hitler's U-Boat War: The Hunted, 1942-1945 (Modern Library War)

Clay Blair Jr.
4.3/5 (163 ratings)
"As always with Blair, the work is meticulously reported and smoothly written."    ---Los Angeles Times


In The Hunters, 1939-1942, the first volume of Hitler's U-boat War, Clay Blair described the Battle of the Atlantic, waged first against the British Empire and then against the Americas. Now he brings his magisterial, highly praised narrative history to a conclusion by looking at the period when the fortunes of the German Navy were almost completely reversed, and when it suffered perhaps the most devastating defeat of any of the German forces.
    
In unprecedented detail and drawing on sources never before used, Clay Blair continues the dramatic tale of the failures and fortunes of the German U-boat campaign against the United States and Great Britain. All of the major patrols and sorties made by the Germans are described meticulously and with considerable human interest: the Peleus and Laconia affairs; the capture at sea of U-505; the crisis of German command; the futile operations against the Americas; and the mounting and devastating losses that, in effect, entirely destroyed the German submarine service.
    
Hitler's U-boat War: The Hunted, 1942-1945 is the brilliant finale to Blair's comprehensive treatment of the rise and fall of German U-boat warfare in World War II.
