The Fighting Captain: Frederic John Walker RN and the Battle of the Atlantic - BURN, Alan

Leo Cooper, 1993, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ.

It is not generally realised how close, how very close, the toll on our Atlantic convoys from 1940 until early 1943 came to bringing Britain to her knees. Without the convoys no supplies; without supplies certainly no Second Front. Captain Frederic Walker, CB, DSO***, RN devised and employed tactics which were the only sure means of combating and ultimately defeating the U-boat wolfpacks, but it was only when the lords of the Admiralty came to employ these tactics that the U-boats were finally defeated. Publishers signature plate to the front pastedown, signed by the author. 204pp. Index. Size: 8vo Medium (8" x 5½" approx.)
