The Battle of the Atlantic, the longest campaign of the Second World War, continued for six years. Marc Milner charts the development both of U-boats and of the various techniques used by the Allies to suppress and destroy these 'stealth' weapons that posed such a threat to Allied shipping. Abandoning the usual Anglo-centric focus, this new interpretation draws on the most recent research and argues that Britain was not unprepared for the campaign and that Germany was never likely to win it.
