This is a history of the development and operation of the Allied convoy system in the Second World War. It explains the organization and protection of convoys and provides descriptions of all the escort vessels, oilers, rescue ships and salvage tugs that were employed. Further explanations are provided on the tactics and weapons of the U-boat war. Also included is an appendix listing every North Atlantic-related convoy, with details of departure and arrival dates and the ships involved, and an index of ships lost. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

The Allied Convoy System... 1939-1945 19. Juni 2001
Von S. Christopher Kelly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Hague, a retired Royal Navy Lieutenant-Commander, author of The Towns, Destroyers for Great Britain, Sloops 1926-1946, co-author of Convoys to Russia, and a former sub-editor of Jane's Fighting Ships has produced nothing new. He has, instead, published a work intended originally, at the request of the Naval Historical Branch in London, for reference use to assist in replying to convoy enquiries. His work on the Allied convoy system is the result of six years of study and reflects his thirty years of naval service, beginning in 1949 as a National Service rating, specializing in ship movements, naval operations and communications, and ending in 1979 after having commanded two Royal Navy Reserve communications centres and the West Midlands Sea Cadet Corps.
It is a technical reference source, not lending itself to an easy Sunday afternoon read, but very useful for specific details rather than eloquent narrative. Included are definitions of the multi-various acronyms found in navalspeak, punctuated definitions, codes, and a short history of the strategic and tactical development of the convoy system, from Julius Caesar's expeditionary fleet through the years leading up to the Second World War. In addition, chapters one and three also cover convoy composition, command and control both in home waters, at sea and abroad. Several chapters are devoted to specific types of ships vital to convoy security and safety, naval intelligence, and enemy dangers such as submarines and aircraft. Throughout are scattered photographs of ships, aircraft and their weapons, captioned by extensive and informative narrative, as well as comprehensive lists of convoys, primarily in the European Theatre, including departure dates, arrival dates, cross-indexed casualties, origins and destinations. Chapter seventeen is devoted exclusively to personnel losses. This text is the kind of summary which might be submitted to the Admiralty by a staff intelligence officer completing an after-action report for several campaigns simultaneously. For the serious student of naval history, this is a must-have.

Excellent data source 18. Februar 2008

This is a reference, not meant to be a flowing narrative. That said, it is a very complete and thorough source for information on the convoy system which ensured the victory in the Atlantic. Sections describe the bureaucratic organization behind the system, variations in the system in different areas over time, the often skipped over importance of signals intelligence, and the progressive development of weaponry and sensors which decisively defeated the U-boat.

Multiple photographs illustrate ship configurations, weaponry, and sensors.

Tables in the back list every convoy and the losses it sustained.

For a one book reference on the "other side" of the U-boat war, this book is a must have.
