Toronto, 1995, Univ of Toronto, 2nd Cnadian printing, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, FINE/FINE COND, xx, 326 pages, illus, maps, notes, bibliog, index. ................................................................................................................................ The Royal Canadian Navy is best known for its role in the defence of convoys against attacks by U-boats, particularly those in the mid-Atlantic from 1941 to 1943. Marc Milner's 1985 book, North Atlantic Run: The Royal Canadian Navy and the Battle for the Convoys, was the first scholarly analysis of those crucial defensive operations. The U-Boat Hunters takes up the story for the last two years of the war, when the measurement of operational effectiveness at sea shifted from success in defending convoys to the ability to hunt down and sink U-boats. The U-Boat Hunters begins with a thorough reevaluation of the RCN's role in the decisive Allied Atlantic victory over the U-boats in 1943. It presents s ... Read more

THE U.S.ARMY WAR COLLEGE GUIDE TO THE BATTLE OF ANTIETAM

Luvaas, Jay & Harold Nelson, editors

Carlisle, 1987 , South Mountain Press, US First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, Fine/Fine condition, 6x9, xv, 310 pages, illus, maps, orders of battle, index. -----------------------------------------------To understand the Battle of Antietam it is necessary to know the background conditions of both armies, the events immediately preceding America's bloodiest day;' and the thought processes of the leaders. As Professor Luvaas points out in his introduction, this book helps "to explain how the battle was fought" and "why leaders on both sides acted as they did." The method here is similar to that used in the Gettysburg volume where the first-hand "after-action" reports coupled with maps and photos tell the story. One striking difference here, however, is geographic. The Maryland Campaign of which Antietam was the final event takes us through the operations of the opposing armies as they meet at the Battle of South Mountain. We follow the a ... Read more

Naval Institute Press, Annapolis, 1982, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, oblong 10 x 9 1/2, VG/VG condition, ( very minor dj wear head of spine), 331 pages, massively illustrated with photos and drawings. --------------------------------------From 1939 through 1945, the U.S. Coast Guard greatly expanded the scope of its operations and the number of its personnel to meet wartime demands. At the height of the war, 425 Coast Guard cutters were in operation, along with more than 4,000 small craft. Of these, some 2,000 were newly constructed, and hundreds more were acquired from private sources as emergency acquisitions. In addition, the Coast Guard manned nearly 300 vessels that operated under Navy control, and almost as many for the Army. With this expansion of the Coast Guard came many new responsibilities that, until now, have been poorly documented. The broad range of the service's operations will come as a revelation to many. Few people, for example, are aware of the Coast Guard ... Read more

Scouring long-out-of-print books and dusty archives, veteran writer and merchant marine officer Bruce Felknor has collected the most dramatic of these stories from all of America's wars through World War II into a single comprehensive illustrated volume. Excerpts from such authors as Winston Churchill, Samuel Eliot Morison, and Lowell Thomas are combined with eyewitness accounts—many never before published—by heroes, victims, and survivors.

THE U-BOAT PERIL - An Anti-Submarine Commander's War

Whinney, Bob, ( Capt. Reginald, RN, DSC & 2 bars )

Poole England: Blandford Press 1986, UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 160 pages, illustrations & maps, bibliog., index. -------------------------------- Bob Whinney, one of the highest scoring anti-U-boat hunters of World War Two, relates how the unforseen development of U-boat warfare by Germany so nearly starved Britain into defeat. His story, however, starts much earlier when, as a young sub lieutenant he served on one of the worst ships in the Invergordon Mutiny of 1931. His vivid description of the mutiny makes fascinating reading in its own right. ------------------------ Immediately before the war he was one of the first to qualify as an anti- submarine specialist, but as he was to find out, a low priority was accorded to anti-submarine warfare throughout the early years of War. His lucid description of action against U-boats as captain of a battered old destroyer is one of the best ever written. It provides a riveting p ... Read more

New York 1989, Putnam, US first edition, 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, xx, 841 pages, illustrations, maps, notes, appendices, bibliog, index. A distinguished historian's definitive account of the development of submarine warfare during and between two world wars. ---------------------------------------------Drawing on a wealth of rich new documentary information and analysis, John Terraine offers a masterful examination of the U-boat campaigns in World Wars I and II, particularly the Battle of the Atlantic, 1939-1945, one of this century's most critical battlegrounds. Beginning with the inception of "unrestricted submarine warfare" in 1916, Terraine examines the day-in-and-day-out endeavors of the navies, the shifting tactics and strategies, and the intricate political maneuverings. He explores the previously obscured roles of air power and British intelligence in World War 2 submarine warfare and shows how the Battle of the Atlantic was very nearly lost, ... Read more
