By 1941, Hitler's warships held the North Atlantic in a stranglehold, threatening to starve Great Britain into submission. The Allied campaign to overcome the German Navy spanned the war, resulting in massive battles and daring commando raids on occupied harbors. Using official war diaries, combat reports, eyewitness accounts, and personal letters, Simon Read delivers a fast-paced story of the Allied bomber crews, sailors, and commandoes who "sunk the Bismarck" and won a hard-fought victory over a formidable foe.

"A wonderful, rip-roaring account of one of the greatest hunts in history…. You'll feel the lash of salt spray, the thunder of depth charges, the immense tension of the chase. A superb addition to the annals of naval WWII history."—Alex Kershaw
