Publisher's Summary

This audiobook is a thrillingly-told story of naval planes, boats, and submarines during World War I.

When the US entered World War I in April 1917, America’s sailors were immediately forced to engage in the utterly new realm of anti-submarine warfare waged on, below and above the seas by a variety of small ships and the new technology of air power. The US Navy substantially contributed to the safe trans-Atlantic passage of a two million man Army that decisively turned the tide of battle on the Western Front even as its battleship division helped the Royal Navy dominate the North Sea. Thoroughly professionalized, the Navy of 1917-18 laid the foundations for victory at sea 25 years later.

The book is published by University of Missouri Press. The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks.
