I listened to this book for about 1.5 hours. The first 15 minutes was very interesting, but then I noticed that it seemed to be lots of facts and minutia, but no real story. It was obvious that Mr. Offley did lots of research and this book is very much a reference and compendium of North Atlantic shipping during WWII. I just didn't see a plot becoming organized or story line developing. If you are a WWII history buff, you may find it very interesting.

Incredible stats that tell a devastating submarine history of the Allies & Germany. Merchant mariners deserve greater recognition than they have heretofore received.

The historical account was good. Well-researched and thorough. The narrator was well-spoken, but bizarrely used American English whilst speaking very standard English. More gravely, he did not even have an elementary grasp of German pronunciation. This was rather jarring at times, as the account was peppered with German names. Apart from these blemishes, I would recommend this audio book to anyone interested in the subject.
Brilliantly told story of a series of forgotten but pivotal battles. A fitting tribute to the courage and fortitude of all who took part on both sides.
