About this title

Synopsis:

Covers the Second World War Operations of the Royal Navy in One Concise Volume

On the declaration of war in 1939, the British Admiralty signaled 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. They had not expected to fight all-out war for another two to three years. While Admiral Karl Dönitz’s U-boat force was to give the Allies much anxiety, Hitler was never comfortable or competent in his handling of naval surface forces. The all-important technological breakthroughs that played so crucial a role, particularly in the Battle of the Atlantic, are given due weight.

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. It examines the markedly different approaches taken by the warring countries and reviews the differing strategies and tactics of the various theaters, such as the Far East, Mediterranean, Atlantic, and Arctic. It also addresses the influence of individual commanders on the outcome of the war at sea.

Total Germany is a first-class read that covers World War II operations in one concise volume.
