About This Item

Weidenfeld & Nicolson,, [1997-99]. 2 vols., 8vo., First Edition thus, with 126 plates on 48, and 2 double-page plans, 27 tables and 14 maps (8 double-page) in the text; black cloth, red endpapers, a near fine set in unclipped dustwrapper. Splendid set of the most comprehensive study to date. The Battle of the Atlantic was the longest, hardest-fought and most critical sea conflict in history: 'they [the U-boats] were the only thing that really frightened me' said Churchill. A study on this scale has been feasible only in the twenty years or so following the release of large official archives (the last of which principally concerned codes and code-breaking) in London and Washington. First published by Random House in New York 1996-98; the UK edition was published in far smaller numbers and in already difficult to find in this state.

Synopsis

Clay Blair is the author of two dozen books that have created a permanent place in the telling of our history. These include Silent Victory: The U.S. Submarine War Against Japan; biographies of Admiral H. G. Rickover; Generals Douglas MacArthur, Matthew B. Ridgway, and Omar N. Bradley; and John F. Kennedy; and, most recently, The Forgotten War, about Korea. He died in 1998.
