Here is one of the most authoritative, thoroughly documented accounts of Allied naval action in the Atlantic and Mediterranean theaters of World War II.

Normandy, Salerno, Operation Neptune, Morocco—this is the story of naval warfare such as the world had never before seen. TRIUMPH IN THE ATLANTIC presents the exciting narrative of Atlantic Surface Operations in all its dramatic detail, from the sinking of the British liner Athenia in 1939 to the devastating defeat of Germany in 1945.

The Atlantic operation was a sea war that made the land war in Europe and Africa possible. It was a sea war fought over the range of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean against the worst hazards men could invent and the worst nature could provide. Through U-boat and surface attack, air threat and minefields, piercing cold and blazing heat, mountainous seas, blinding fog and cutting winds, ships carried out their missions of bringing the troops and supplies to the men and women who needed them.

The fruit of years of painstaking preparation by historians at the U.S. Naval Academy, TRIUMPH IN THE ATLANTIC recalls not only the tactics and maneuvers of a wartime effort unmatched in history, but also the hopes and fears of the men who made it possible.
