About this title:

Synopsis: On the declaration of war in 1939 the British Admiralty signalled all warships and naval bases 'Total Germany, Total Germany'. It was fortunate that of Germany's three armed services, the Kriegsmarine under Grosseradmiral Erich Raeder was the least well prepared. True, Admiral Karl Donitz's U-Boat force was to give the Allies many anxious times but Hitler was never comfortable or competent in his handling of naval surface forces. Total Germany is a concise yet comprehensive account of the Royal Navy's part in the war at sea and the measures taken to ensure victory. The different approaches taken by the warring countries are expertly examined. The author reviews the differing strategies and tactics of the various theatres such as the Far East, Mediterranean, Atlantic and Arctic.

About the Author: David Wragg is the author of some thirty books on aviation and naval history, with dozen of these either co-published in the United States or translated. He has also been a contributor to numerous newspapers and magazines, including The Sunday Telegraph, The Spectator, The Scotsman and The Sunday Herald. His books on the Royal Navy in the two world wars have been described by The Review (Quarterly Journal of the Naval Historical Collectors and Research Association) as '...meticulously researched and presented in a logical and easily read format...' His most recent Pen and Sword title was The World Air Power Guide.
