Throughout 1942 and early 1943, German submarine wolfpacks roamed freely, stalking the Allied transatlantic convoys that were bringing troops and war materiel to Europe's defense, sending thousands of seamen and hundreds of ships to the bottom. In May 1943, however, that changed, as British and American antisubmarine forces began to employ new weapons, technologies, and tactics against the U-boat menace. By month's end, some 41 German subs had been destroyed, and by the end of July, the total reached 91. Although some attacks were still to occur throughout the remainder of the war, Black May, as it came to be called, had broken the back of the U-boat threat.
Until now, the full story of how Black May came about has never been fully told. Here, for the first time, readers will go inside the fevered war rooms of the high command, scramble to battle stations aboard a pitching destroyer on patrol, and read the personal narratives of the men -- German, British, and American -- who lived through the terror and the thrill of the struggle for control of the seas. With fascinating details of the tactics and technologies of the day and dozens of dramatic photos of the ships, men, and weapons in action, Black May 1943 is the book for which Michael Gannon's large and enthusiastic audience has been waiting.
