Details

Here is the dramatic story of how the Royal Navy, assisted by Allied warships and merchant ships, met one of the most daunting challenges of the Second World War-the transportation of war material and supplies to the Russian port of Murmansk. At first the convoys had only fog, ice, gales of unparalleled frequency and intensity, and the varying extremes of day and night to contend with. Later, when the enemy realised the importance to the Russian war effort of these convoys, the Germans added to these natural hazards by attacking the convoys relentlessly with aircraft, submarines, and surface warships.

The author describes this heroic struggle from both the Allied and German points of view based on British, Russian, German, and American sources. The Arctic Convoys is an enthralling story of one of the most important series of naval conflicts of the Second World War.

Hardcover, 197 pgs, well illustrated with photographs and maps, bibliography, appendices, index. Very good, cover very slightly damaged, owner’s name within.
