Description: Naval combat underwent a significant metamorphosis during World War II. Axis (Germany, Japan, Italy) built some of the most powerful battleships ever to rule the world's oceans. But the conflict witnessed the emergence and triumph of the aircraft carrier as the 20th century's true monarch of the seas. Submarine warfare expanded and developed, while aircraft technology and doctrine experienced several revolutionary changes. However, the Axis failed to secure either the seas or the skies, and their defeat in these theaters ultimately led to their doom, due to high command disinterest or simple lack of resources. Allied controlled the sea lanes and eventually ending much of the threat of U-boat attack, cleaning sea lanes for seaborne invasions. Indeed, the “ultimate weapon” of World War II proved to be not a specific type of tank or aircraft, but a combined power of both air and naval operations, deployed by the aircraft carrier. The book looks at the course of the fighting in the Atlantic and Pacific during the war, and the changes both sides made in an effort to establish supremacy.
