Book Review – Deep Sea Hunters, RAF Coastal Command and the War Against the U-boats and the German Navy 1939-1945



Another fine book from a prolific author who has established a reputation for good writing and thorough research. After years of relative neglect, the Coastal Command story is becoming popular and this is an outstanding example of the relative neglect being convincingly corrected. There are two excellent photo plate sections with some rare photographs and this is a book that provides a narrative of the Coastal Command story from its shaky start, its rapid development, and its growing success to the end of WWII in Europe.

The author has cover the full story and made a very good job of it. This is an enjoyable and very informative book for all those interested in maritime warfare and aviation. Highly Recommended.
