It shows the margin by which Britain escape defeat by Dönitz's U-boats in the Battle of the Atlantic, and it describes the feats of British submarines in the Mediterranean, the disappointing performance of Japanese giant submarines in the Pacific, and finally the triumph of US submarines, which, ahd it been achieved earlier, might have made the atomic bombs unnecessary." - fromthe dust jacket.
