Editorial Reviews Review

This mammoth book concludes the two-volume set that began with The Hunters, 1939-1942. If the first installment charted the rise of the U-boat, this one describes its downfall as the United States became fully engaged in the Second World War. A careful scholar, Blair never overstates the impact the U-boats played on the war's final outcome, even though they sank roughly 3,000 ships. He is, above all, comprehensive. Rather than a breezy overview, this book describes, spread out over nearly 900 pages (including 20 appendices!), almost every U-boat action in the second half of the war. Some readers will find this level of detail exhausting, but others will revel in it, and The Hunted is sure to be regarded as a standard in its field. --John J. Miller


"A triumph of naval history-writing."   --The Times (London)

"An admirable and important book.... Should become the standard history of
the Unterseeboote for many years."  
--Russell F. Weigley, The Washington Post --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
