It is not generally realised how close, how very close, the toll on our Atlantic convoys from 1940 until early 1943 came to bringing Britain to her knees. Without the convoys no supplies- without supplies certainly no Second Front. Captain FredericMoreIt is not generally realised how close, how very close, the toll on our Atlantic convoys from 1940 until early 1943 came to bringing Britain to her knees. Without the convoys no supplies- without supplies certainly no Second Front.

Captain Frederic Walker RN devised and employed tactics which were the only sure means of combating and ultimately defeating the U-boat Wolf packs, but it was only when the Lords of the Admiralty came to employ these tactics that the U-boats were finally defeated.No one did more to regain control of the North Atlantic than Captain Walker. His relentless battle with the U-boat Wolf packs, amounting almost to a personal duel with Admiral Donitz, is an epic saga which has long deserved a larger page in the story of our nations history, though he did achieve the rare distinction of winning the DSO and three bars.Alan Burn, who served under Walker, brilliantly recaptures the feeling of those dramatic days - the sheer bloody hell of the Atlantic weather, the ever-present menace of the lurking U-boats, but above all the quite remarkable and indomitable spirit which Walker managed to inspire in all who served in the ships under his command.Not only the citizens of Liverpool, where Walker is still revered as a local hero, but all who hold freedom dear will appreciate this well-merited tribute to a largely unsung hero who did as much as any man to preserve that freedom.
