Table of Contents

The Journal of Military History- "This is an excellent book. The research is prodigious, the prose clear and the conclusions reasonably convincing. Air power played a decisive role in not only the destruction of the German submarine fleet but in the destruction of the merchant fleet as well. Dr Goulter has performed a tremendous service in bringing this "forgotten offensive" to light."

Intelligence and National Security- " It is handsomely produced and nicely augmented by maps, photographs, and statistical tables"

The Northern Mariner-" There is little to fault with Goulter"s work...she has made an excellent contribution to the maritime history of World War II"

Military Review -" A Forgotten Offensive is the first detailed examination of this antishipping campaign...The study"s value lies in its superior coverage of an institution competing for limited sources and its emphasis on the importance of economic warfare in World War II"

Aerospace Power Journal, Vol 14, No 1, April 2000

"This is certainly one of the excellent texts of maritime air operations in Northwest Europe. Coastal Command never had an official history written about its convoy operations; this book fills that void."

"the product of detailed and exhaustive research."
