U-Boats Vs Destroyer Escorts: The Battle of the Atlantic

Winston Churchill claimed that the "U-boat peril" was the only thing that ever frightened him during World War II. A formidable foe, the U-boat was developed from a small coastal vessel into a state-of-the-art killer, successfully stalking the high seas picking off merchant convoy ships. It was not until the destroyer escort was introduced, alongside the development of destroyer groups with dedicated anti-submarine tactics, that there was an effective means of defence and attack against the U-boat peril.

Gordon Williamson describes the design and development of these two deadly opponents, their strengths and weaknesses and of their tactics, weaponry and training. He provides an insight into the lives of the Allied Navy and Wolf Pack crews as they played their deadly games of cat and mouse on the high seas, gambling not only with their lives but with the fate of their nations.

Review: U-boats vs Destroyer Escorts: The Battle of the Atlantic (Duel #3)

User Review  - Sean Chick - Goodreads

A lackluster title all around. Williamson also downplays the Nazi element among the u-boat men, which grew considerably as the war wore on, due in part to Donitz's Nazism and the belief that more ideologically driven crews would ore readily risk death in nearly impossible circumstances.

It was a good general overview but not a great one. It is typical Osprey great for modelers, great pictures but for good history look elsewhere nothing new but the pictures are nice Read full review
