The War At Sea 1939-45
By

Rating
The Second World War produced hundreds of actions and incidents at sea which were packed with drama and suspense, and which evoked the greatest heroism. Here is a generous selection of personal experience written by the men and women who were there- in the British and Commonwealth Navies, the Fleet Air Arm, the Merchant Navy, or ashore. Names which have passed into history - Narvik, Dunkirk, the River Plate, the Bismarck, the Scharnhorst, Crete, Anzio, the Battle of the Atlantic, the Russian convoys - all these and many others are reflected in these gripping eyewitness testimonies. This is the first volume in the unique Freedom's Battle trilogy, which provides intensely vivid accounts of war at sea, in the air and on land. Far any single narrative, the extracts build up a complete picture of the War as it was experienced by the men and women who actually fought in it.

Reviews

"To the creators of this inviting and exciting book, to its editor and to his publishers must go unstinted praise" * Naval Review * "It is a gem. It is the almost perfect bedside book... He has mastered one of the most difficult of literary techniques, the selection and presentation as a single work of art of a long series of excerpts from other people's work. In short, he is the ideal editor" * Irish Press *
