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.

Terrible. I only made it through about 80 pages and gave up!

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