Reviews

'[A] splendid new history of the war in the Atlantic...Simon Parkin's book rips along at full sail and is full of personality and personalities. Above all, it brings a barely known aspect of the sea war out into the light. Which is a triumph in itself.' - Sunday ExpressSheds compelling new light on the ferocious struggle being played out in the mid-Atlantic between cocksure German U-boat captains and the convoys on which they preyed...The story of the game of birds and wolves has all the elements of a film by Powell and Pressburger. - Sunday TimesWith novelistic flair, Parkin transforms material gathered from research, interviews, and unpublished accounts into a highly readable book that celebrates the ingenuity of a British naval 'reject' and the accomplishments of the formerly faceless women never officially rewarded for their contribution to the Allied defeat of Germany. A lively, sharp WWII history. - Kirkus Reviews
