Overview

It is not surprising that the U.S. Navy's Pacific campaign during the Second World War received so much attention from naval historians—certainly the defeat of Japan was the navy's greatest contribution to the war, but the navy also played a significant role in the battle against Hitler. The U.S. Navy and the War in Europe is intended to redress that imbalance—not just to chronicle the many undervalued U.S. operations in the Atlantic, Arctic and Mediterranean, but to reach a more well-rounded judgment of the U.S. Navy's contribution to the victory in Europe. An illustrated, readable history of this under-appreciated aspect of the war, this book takes a revisionist view of the war in Europe.
