Michael Gannon wrote the awesome Operation Drumbeat (see our review) so this one is anticipated by many people. I've reviewed this excellent book which is really a must-read. It covers Allied anti-submarine tactics and developments. Then it covers in great detail the battle for ONS.5 and then spends a considerable time on the battle for the Bay of Biscay during the summer of 1943.
