It's a start Dec 29 2012
By Matthew Tesch - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Every researcher of, and writer about, the naval history of WW2 will inevitably draw on Roskill's seminal official record at some point. What these volumes lack in battle-narrative detail they make up for in the jaw-dropping, broad-brush immensity of their coverage of the world's oceans, combatants and theatres of war - from a largely Royal Navy perspective. What these volumes lack in alternative perspectives has largely been balanced and refined by many other authors who have followed in Roskill's footsteps - usually with the benefit of not only greater hindsight but also better access to more and detailed, and once-restricted, records. This series will not provide all the 'flesh' we know today, but it remains an important 'skeleton' upon which to build interpretations and assessments.
