Overview


The "Lost Histories of World War II" series is a fascinating, photo-filled collection of never-before-seen, recently de-classified accounts of important episodes in World War II chronicles.
The War Against the Nazi U-Boats 1942–1944 is the second book in the "Lost Histories" series. As Churchill clung to the last thread of hope, the supplies he so desperately needed sank into the Atlantic Ocean as German wolf packs savaged the convoys headed to England. To fight the threat, an audacious plan was created to counter the German submarines using long-range bombers. In this lost history, the role of American B-24 Liberators is told in exacting detail from a narrative written in 1945 when the information was fresh and the facts unvarnished. A must-have addition to any World War II library!

    Excellent Research Document, but filled with Typos

    This book's best purpose is as reference material for those interested in researching the U.S. and allied activities in defense of U-Boat attacks during that vital period 1942-44.

    This is not a good choice for the more casual history buff, however, as is more of a documentation effort than a narrative one.

    Unfortunately, this book appears to have been scanned into its electronic format with no review of the result. Consequently, the Nook version of this book is therefore riddled with typographical errors that make it a frustrating read.

    Conclusion: poor for casual reading; good for research. B&N should never have released it in the current state - without even having done a quick check of the scan results.

    Yawner

    Boring, uninteresting details of which service should control which aspect of anti-submarine warfare.
