    <b><i>World War Two at Sea</i></b> retells the naval history of the war, covering everything from submarine warfare in the Atlantic to major operations in the Pacific during the Second World War. It features dozens of eye-catching naval photographs drawn from the archives compiled by all the major fighting powers.

    Starting with the sinking of the British passenger liner <i>Athenia</i> by a German U-boat just hours after war was declared and concluding with Operation Ten-Go, the last desperate attempt by the Japanese to defend Okinawa and the sinking of <i>Yamamoto</i>, the world's biggest super-battleship, this book demonstrates how vital it was for the war at sea to be won as an essential preliminary to the land and air campaigns that brought about final victory. Inspiring, informative and entertaining special features focus on particularly crucial operations as well as some of the lesser-known aspects of the conflict: the battle against the magnetic mine and as other secret weapons such as the maiale, X-craft, kaiten, the mysteries of asdic, sonar and radar.
