9780760347652: World War II at Sea: A Naval View of the Global Conflict: 1939 to 1945

Discover how the vital war at sea was fought, from the first battle to the last.

As soon as World War II broke out in September 1939, the conflict at sea began and was fought with fury until the unconditional surrender of Germany and Japan nearly six years later. World War II at Sea highlights the key moments in this fascinating, pivotal, and absorbing story.

From the sinking of the British passenger liner Athenia to Operation Ten-Go, decisive battles and engagements are fully explored?"clashes such as Cape Mataplan, aptly regarded as a Mediterranean Trafalgar, in which the British navy scored one of the greatest and most one-sided victories in its history against the Italian battlefleet. Discover how, starting with Midway and continuing at Guadalcanal, the US Pacific Fleet fought the Imperial Japanese Navy to a standstill in the early years of the war to establish naval supremacy throughout the Pacific.

Some of the lesser-known aspects of the conflict, such as the battle against the magnetic mine and the exploits of the German surface raider Pinguin, aren't ignored. Unusual and secret weapons like maiale, X-craft, kaiten, asdic, sonar and radar, and much, much more are discussed.

Fully illustrated throughout with a fascinating mixture of historic photographs, maps, charts, and specially-devised diagrams, World War II at Sea is s compelling read and an essential reference for every history enthusiast.

Descripción Zenith. 1 Cloth(s), 2015. hard. Estado de conservación: New. The fighting at sea in World War II was as ferocious as the land war, and this heavily illustrated history chronicles key naval actions from the torpedoing of the British passenger liner Athenia in September 1939 to Operation Ten-Go, the Japanese navy's desperate last-ditch defense of Okinawa in April 1945. Decisive battles and engagements are fully explored—with large captioned photos, silhouette drawings, and battle maps—as are major campaigns like the U-boat war in the Battle of the Atlantic, landings in Africa and Normandy, and the U.S. Navy's island-to-island conquest of the Pacific. Here too are unusual and secret weapons like Germany's magnetic mines, Britain's X-craft minisubs, and Japan's kaiten suicide torpedoes. 208. Nº de ref. de la librería 71394
