Struggle for the Middle Sea

The Great Navies at War in the Mediterranean Theater, 1940-1945

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The Mediterranean is the maritime crossroads where Europe, Asia, and Africa meet. More major naval actions were fought there than in the Atlantic or Pacific yet remarkably little has been written about the subject. This fresh study of the Mediterranean's naval war analyzes the actions and performances of the five major navies--British, Italian, French, German, and American--during the entire five-year campaign and examines the national imperatives that drove each nation's maritime strategy.

Struggle for the Middle Sea provides a history of the entire campaign from all perspectives and covers Germany's largely unknown--and remarkably successful--struggle to employ sea power in the Mediterranean after the Italian armistice. Defense & Foreign Affairs Strategic Policy (August 2009) has called it "a new and stunningly important view of World War II" and "a fabulously readable and important book."
