Re: Battle of Atlantic

Read Michael Gannon's seminal work "Operation Drumbeat." It covers both Drumbeat (Paukenschlag) and Neuland. He lays a lot of the loses squarely at E.J. King's feet, citing his direct refusal to listen to the Royal Navy's suggestions and advice, in no small part due to his Anglophobia.

Gannon followed up with another, great book, looking at the six months' campaign that led to "Black May" and the breaking of the Kriegsmarine's U-boat campaign in the North Atlantic in May, 1943.

Best,
Andy
