Anglo-American-Canadian Naval Relations, 1943-1945

Edited by Michael Simpson

  • Description
Essential reading for scholars and interested parties, this book on Anglo-American-Canadian Naval Relations, 1943-1945 edited by Michael Simpson, gives a fully researched strategic insight into naval operations between the Allies during the latter half of the second world war. This is the final volume of a set of five. This volume commences with Admiral of the Fleet Sir Andrew Cunningham's assumption of the fleet in 1943 and concludes with the formal surrender of Japan in 1945. During this time victory was forged and the three major Allies had a series of unbroken maritime triumphs. Drawing from naval records held in the UK and from access to personal correspondence, the book is divided into five parts. Part I deals with the relationships of the senior commanders and their opinions of the overall strategy. Part II discusses the last stage of the fight against the U-boats. The Canadian naval and air forces played a major role in anti-submarine warfare in the Atlantic. Part III approaches the subject of the Western Allies eventual return to north-wet Europe. In Part IV, the final operations in the Mediterranean, including the landings in Southern France and in Italy, are covered. Part V recounts the participation of the British Pacific Fleet in the concluding operations against Japan.
