The Battle of the Atlantic was crucial to the Allied victory. If the German U-boats had prevailed, the maritime artery across the Atlantic would have been severed. Mass hunger would have consumed Britain, and the Allied armies would have been prevented from joining in the invasion of Europe. There would have been no D-Day.

The Battle of the Atlantic interweaves fascinating contemporary diaries and letters with a thrilling narrative and, uniquely, the overall picture of the Second World War. From senior members of the competing High Commands in London, Washington, Berlin and Moscow down to the humblest sailor, Jonathan Dimbleby tells the epic story of the decisions that led to victory, and the horror and humanity endured in those perilous seas.
