Submarine warfare in the Atlantic examines the submarine battle in the Atlantic Ocean during World War II. Primarily, it looks at the German U-Boats and their attempt to cut the Allied supply line across the Atlantic, but it also looks at Allied submarines and the role they played. Designs as well as roles are looked at and the different approaches taken by each side are examined, with the Allies settling on a few designs and mass producing them, whilst the Germans were constantly looking at and trying new designs. There are far more detailed books about the Atlantic campaign below the waves (it’s a short book that I read in one go), but this offers an excellent overview into the role of submarines in the Atlantic Ocean during World War II.
