It is not surprising that the U.S. Navy’s Pacific campaign during the Second World War received so much attention from naval historians— certainly the defeat of Japan was the navy’s greatest contribution to the war, but the navy also played a significant role in the battle against Hitler. The U.S. Navy and the War in Europe is intended to redress that imbalance—not just to chronicle the many undervalued U.S. operations in the Atlantic, Arctic and Mediterranean, but to reach a more well-rounded judgment of the U.S. Navy’s contribution to the victory in Europe. An illustrated, readable history of this underappreciated aspect of the war, this book takes a revisionist view of the war in Europe.
Robert C. Stern has published more than twenty books on military and naval subjects including the bestselling Battle Beneath the Waves. His previous books were Destroyer Battles published in 2008 and Fire from the Sky in 2010.

“Robert C. Stern writes well, and his observations on the development of the ‘special relationship’ between Britain and the USA are particularly astute.” — Books of the Year column in Warship, 2013
