Description

Franklyn E. Dailey. Jr. takes the reader back to two challenging U.S. Navy missions in World War II. First, he offers a participant's view of the defense of convoys against German U-boats. Then, as his destroyer's primary mission changed, he brings the reader to a live-action view of five amphibious landing force operations - Casablanca, Sicily, Salerno, Anzio and Southern France. Churchill and Roosevelt had made defeat of Germany a priority ahead of the defeat of Japan. For Normandy to be successful, the Allies had to assure a supply line to the British Isles and then wrest back control of the Mediterranean from Germany. Army Divisions, Rangers, warships, attack transports and combatant aircraft, many with prominent unit names, are found in this book. Dailey also outlines the wartime geopolitical background, which will give the reader a good grasp of the larger picture of the action experienced by sea warriors in W.W.II.
