Details

The Battle of the Atlantic was the single most important campaign of the Second World War. Victory or defeat for Britain hung on the outcome of this six-year long struggle for supremacy in the Atlantic.
In this talk, broadcaster and acclaimed author Jonathan Dimbleby will show how Britain's success in the Battle of the Atlantic led to the allied victory in 1945. Through extraordinary personal diaries and letters written by both sailors and politicians, he will tell the epic story of how the allies won the war.
