An accessible and authoritative introduction to the Battle of the Atlantic for adult readers.

Part of the new Ladybird Expert series, Battle of the Atlantic is an accessible, insightful and authoritative account of WWII's longest battle, the naval campaign to keep supply lines open and enable Britain to continue to fight.

Historian, author and broadcaster James Holland draws on the latest research and interviews with participants to bring colour, detail and a fresh perspective to the story of how the siege of Europe was broken.

Inside, you'll discover how tactics, organisation and new technologies were brought to bear, about the different challenges faced by both the Allies and the Axis, and, above all, the skill, bravery and endurance of the sailors and pilots engaged in a contest that was of critical importance to the outcome of the war.

Reviews for The Battle of the Atlantic: A Ladybird Expert Book

Shines a light on some of the darkest and most dramatic moments of the six-year conflict. * Daily Mail * The artwork is gloriously retro, echoing the original Ladybird house style but containing completely up to date information. * Shiny New Books *
