The history of the Royal Navy during the Second World War is an epic story of heroism and defiance, of stinging defeats but glorious triumphs. Typically books tend to concentrate on the battle history of the navy, and of course this book also examines this topic from convoys to amphibious war, from submarine operations to the last gunnery battles in the Atlantic. But it also looks at the ships themselves, recruitment, and the life and career paths of the officers that commanded and the men and women who served, the technical developments that influenced operations and tactics. It details the composition of the surface and submarine navy from the smallest torpedo boat to the massive battleships and aircraft carriers. This work will provide the most comprehensive assessment of all aspects of Churchill's Navy.
