Written by an acknowledged expert in the field of U-boat operations in World War 2 Wolf Packs: The Evolution of U -Boat Warfare is a compelling read. During the course of World War 2 one element of German strategy came close to defeating Britain - the U-Boat. With Britain relying upon the tenuous link across the Atlantic for its supplies of raw materials and food, any threat to the country's maritime trade was a threat to the country's survival. The War of the Atlantic, with German U-Boats pitched against British and Allied convoys was one of the most dramatic of the war. During the course of the war, however, the strategy and tactics employed by the competing nations varied as measure and countermeasure were taken to defeat the enemy. From the German standpoint, the development and evolution of the Wolf Pack was an essential part of their strategy for the Atlantic war and one which came close to achieving victory. Drawing upon original records from the U-Boat command, from Royal Navy reports and special intelligence from Bletchley Park, U-Boat Warfare: the Evolution of the Wolf Pack is a detailed study into the strategy and tactics of the U-boat fleet during World War 2. The book explores how and why the U-boat command planned the attacks, how the Wolf Packs were set up, how much Special Intelligence was contributed by Bletchley Park towards their defeat, what Britain did to combat the Wolf Packs and what actually happened on the seas. Supplemented by some 150 photographs, many of which are previously unpublished, along with maps, the narrative represents a remarkable exploration into one of the most critical campaigns of the war.
