Accompanying the the BBc television series of the the same name, this work tells the story of Hitler's attempt to sever Britain's lifeline across the Atlantic. For Winston Churchill it was "the only thing that ever frightened me during the war". The book recounts the tale of the longest, most bitterly fought campaign of World War II. From 1939 until 1942, Hitler's U-Boats - his "grey wolves" - threatened to do what his air force couldn't - starve Britain into submission.
