This is a very good thoroughly researched account combining narrative history, quotations from participants and insightful analysis. The book is excellent in illustrating the 'fog of war' ; how each side sought to second guess the other and shape their own plans accordingly. The book cross references contemporary German and allied records, debunking inflated claims by both sides. It is at its best in describing the massed attack by 43 German torpedo bombers on 13th September which sunk 8 ships in 13 minutes. The author is a prolific military historian and brings a wealth of knowledge about other campaigns. For example there is a useful potted history of the development of torpedo bombing in the Luftwaffe.Read more ›
Book is accurate, rather "matter-of-fact", ie doesnt glorify war nor is it triumphalist... well worth reading agan and again!
