Description
Information
This book challenges the popular idea that Britain was a wartime sea power, by demonstrating that the dependence on seaborne imports of food and raw materials, together with the obligations of Empire, were less a form of strength to Britain than a weakness.

Topics discussed in the book include:
- strategic debates in London and Washington
- the remorseless struggle against the U-Boat in the Atlantic
- the desperate convoy battles in the Mediterranean and the Arctic
- and the battles in the Far East.

It weaves in the rivalry between Allied and German technology and the all-important secret war of the cryptographers.
