Hitlers U-Boat War: The Hunted, 1942-1945 by Clay Blair Jr.

As always with Blair, the work is meticulously reported and smoothly written.    ---Los Angeles Times


In The Hunters, 1939-1942, the first volume of Hitlers U-boat War, Clay Blair described the Battle of the Atlantic, waged first against the British Empire and then against the Americas. Now he brings his magisterial, highly praised narrative history to a conclusion by looking at the period when the fortunes of the German Navy were almost completely reversed, and when it suffered perhaps the most devastating defeat of any of the German forces.
    
In unprecedented detail and drawing on sources never before used, Clay Blair continues the dramatic tale of the failures and fortunes of the German U-boat campaign against the United States and Great Britain. All of the major patrols and sorties made by the Germans are described meticulously and with considerable human interest: the Peleus and Laconia affairs; the capture at sea of U-505; the crisis of German command; the futile operations against the Americas; and the mounting and devastating losses that, in effect, entirely destroyed the German submarine service.
    
Hitlers U-boat War: The Hunted, 1942-1945 is the brilliant finale to Blairs comprehensive treatment of the rise and fall of German U-boat warfare in World War II.

Thank you! On the basis of his painstaking research, Blair Ridgway's Paratroopers, , etc. Noting that 99 percent of the Allied merchant ships in transatlantic convoys reached their destination, he suggests that the principal achievement of the U-boats may have been obliging Anglo-American forces to commit substantive resources to anti-submarine warfare. Without ever suggesting that the Battle of the Atlantic was other than a bitter, to-the-death struggle on both sides, the author who saw action aboard a US sub in the Pacific theater makes a persuasive case for his revisionist thesis. In doing so, moreover, he offers gripping, hell-and-high- water accounts of submarine warfare.

Clay Blair. Submarine War Against Japan, is regarded as the definitive account of that decisive phase of the war in the Pacific. Nine years in the making, Hitler's U-boat War is destined to become the definitive account of the German submarine war against the Allies, or "The Battle of the Atlantic. For a period of nearly six years, the German U-boat force attempted to blockade and isolate the British Isles, in hopes of forcing the British out of the war, thereby thwarting the Allied strategic air assault on German cities as well as Overlord, the Allied invasion of Occupied France.
