    1. -Una excelente visión de conjunto.-Género. Historia.Lo que nos cuenta. El libro La batalla del Atlántico (publicación original: The Battle of the Atlantic: The Allies' Submarine Fight Against Hitler's Gray Wolves of the Sea, 2002) nos lleva hasta los combates en el Atlántico durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, hasta las razones estratégicas del Eje y los Aliados a la hora de explicar sus despliegues y tácticas, mientras da voz a los testimonios de participantes en los combates.¿Quiere sab [...]

    2. If you're looking for a single book that will put the entire Uboat War into perspective, with great anecdotes and thrilling incidents, this is the book for you. If you're already an expert or are looking for in-depth analysis of specific phases of the Uboat struggle, you're more likely to be happier with another, longer volume. But this was perfect for me. Well-written, well-illustrated, and balanced--just the book on the Battle of the Atlantic I had been looking for a long time.

    3. Andrew Williams The Battle of the Atlantic is a good companion to an excellent History Channel miniseries. If you are lucky you might get the commercial free version on military history. The miniseries is excellent and worth the watching. Williams' book is excellent and borders on a four star because it is well written and informative. However it is a survey of the Battle of the Atlantic. With the other great if not classic material out there Williams depends on oral histories which are critical [...]

    4. I liked learning about the different tactics and found it very interesting to learn how much technology changed from the beginning of the war to the end. I guess the U boat XXI coming into the war so late was quite fortuitous for the Allies. Survivors, prisoners of war and their eye witness accounts make this book worth reading. Interesting stuff.

    5. A fine account of what was one of the most important battles of WWII.The importance of the Atlantic supply line cannot be overestimated and the number of lives lost on both sides, ordinary seamen, mostly in the allies case is a testament to this.This is a good account and provides a good overview of this conflict.

    6. You can tell this is a book to accompany a TV series. But it's got enough to be serious and, of course, the eye-witness material is good.

    7. I like history and this book is much like Bitter Ocean. However, in my opinion, the writing wasn't as distant from the reader. One could relate better to it.
