about

Previous books written about naval warfare in the Baltic from 1939 to 1945 focus only on single navies, while the role of smaller secondary players--the Finnish, Danish or Swedish navies--tends to be ignored. This book looks at the overall picture, with each player receiving his proper due. One of the narrow seas, the Baltic has a set of characteristics and operational problems different from those on any open ocean. It is these challenges that this book seeks to emphasize, challenges which the U.S. Navy will now face.

Editorial Reviews

"While most of us in the United States and elsewhere are familiar with large blue water navies, not enough attention has been paid to those areas referred to as littorals. Littoral regions can be characterized by confined and congested water and air space, occupied by a thick mix of allies, adversaries, and neutrals....[this book] attempts to get us in the right mindset regarding littoral warfare. Marines should read this book in order to examine the type of warfare that they may be called upon to fight...this book tells a story of a much forgotten aspect of a war that is overshadowed by the massive land battles that dominated the Russo-German war."-Marine Corps Gazette
