READ The Battle of the Atlantic Jonathan Dimbleby â 1 FREE READ FREE READ ✓ The Battle of the Atlantic 'Majestic Truly gripping' Andrew Roberts The Battle of the Atlantic was the single most important and longest campaign of the Second World War If Britain lost this vital supply route it lost the war In Jonathan Dimbleby's brilliant and dramatic new account we see how this epic struggle for maritime mastery played out. I approached The Battle of the Atlantic with a certain amount of caution Jonathon Dimbleby is best known as a TV and radio presenter whose previous works have mainly been pedestrian biographies and I was unaware of his having any great interest in naval history What I found was a well researched and thoughtful account of one of the most strategically important and under appreciated campaigns of the Second World WarDimbleby combines some first hand accounts with a reasonable sweeping review of the technological and economic elements of the U boat campaign At times he does lose focus allowing himself to be drawn away into allied campaigns like the Mediterranean and the doings of the surface fleet often for no discernible reason I would also have liked a little operation detail on the activities and pressures on both Derby House and the German side but that said this is a sound and enjoyable book Those wishing for something analytical would do better with John Terraine s masterly Business in Great Waters
