Descripton: This book is 25% about the Battle of The Atlantic. Cover blurb: "'Rich in unexpected facts and insights... Keegan's historical command is dazzling.' Jan Morris, Independent. In Battle at Sea, John Keegan applies to maritime warfare the technique that he put to such brilliant effect in his classic of war on land, The Face of Battle. He concentrates on four key conflicts: Trafalgar, Jutland, Midway and The Battle of The Atlantic. He takes us into the very heart of the fighting while providing a remarkable panoramic view of naval warfare through the centuries." Originally published 1988.
