16 Waters, Captain John M. BLOODY WINTER Critical Months in the Battle of the Atlantic
Princeton NJ D. Van Nostrand Company 1967 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Book and dust (not price clipped) in very good condition. Former owner's name neatly written in front. Map endpapers. A reviewer said "I am so glad that John Waters took the time to research and write this book. It is extraordinary, accurately capturing in vivid detail the Battle of the Atlantic in World War II. This is a perspective from both the Allied convoy escort ships and the German submarines that were bent on stopping the flow of material from North America to Britain and Russia.As a historical document it is filled with primary source material that has been woven into an accurate true story that makes you feel as if you are actually there experiencing the action as it is described. This is possible because not only did the author thoroughly research the subject using war records, ships logs, and personal interviews he also had first hand experience." ; Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 279 pages
