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 under-appreciated aspect of the war, this book takes a revisionist view of the war in Europe.
