The War for the Seas: A Maritime History of World war II by Evan Mawdsley.

Command of the oceans was crucial to winning World War II. Evan Mawdsley's definitive maritime history of the war takes a fully international perspective and challenges much previous understanding. From the first Nazi U-boat operations in 1939 to the surrender of imperial Japan, this majestic history recounts the key campaigns of the world's navies, great and small, and provides many original insights into the war for the seas.
