This first volume explores all U. S. naval operations in the Atlantic, including the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, Barents Sea, and the defense of American shores and ships, with much attention given to the war against the German U-boats.
This edition will have a new Introduction by Robert W. Love, author of History of the U.S. Navy: Volume I, 1775-1941 and Volume II, 1942-1991.
This review is for all books of this series. I have read all 15 volumes and use them on a regular basis for research. Bearing in mind that they were written immediately following World War II, some things were still classified at that time. Mr. Morison did an excellent job crafting the series from all available sources and made it readable for anyone with an interest. I highly recommend this series for anyone with an interest in the Navy as well as other services during the war.
