World War II at Sea: A Naval View of the Global Conflict: 1939 to 1945

By JEREMY HARWOOD

The publication date is 1 July 2015 »

Please join us the evening of 18 June 2015 in the 'Victory at Sea: U.S. Navy, Coast Guard & Merchant Marine' group. We have ten (10) copies reserved for us by our great friend Nichole Schiele and business partner Zenith Press.

From Zenith Press: "Discover how the vital war at sea was fought, from the first battle to the last. As soon as World War II broke out in September 1939, the conflict at sea began and was fought with fury until the unconditional surrender of Germany and Japan nearly six years later. World War II at Sea highlights the key moments in this fascinating, pivotal, and absorbing story."

"Upon reading a detailed narrative of the Dardanelles campaign, I came away with such a different understanding of the issues then I did from more abbreviated descriptions. There was so much more to ponder than it just being a side conflict to the…"

"Great review Tim. You make excellent points. The First World War was so much about the leadership and political turmoil of the era. And, as you note, Moorehead had the benefit of enough passage of time since the war's end to offer perspective,…"

"That's interesting. Sounds like it is probably wrong to think of the WWII Italy campaign as another attempt at the Gallipoli strategy, since it was more about timing and logistics for the Allies. Good insight."
