Description

American Command of the Sea examines the development of Allied code breaking expertise, the role of signal intelligence in the global war at sea in the 1940s, and the ways in which the modern American navy has been shaped by the experience of World War II. This books draws on recently declassified documents to show that many Allied naval victories hinged on the work of a small, multinational group of Allied code breakers.

World War II forever changed the nature of naval warfare. Aircraft carriers and submarines, in particular, were used to devastating effect against Axis forces in both the Atlantic and the Pacific, ultimately tilting the conflict in favor of the Allies. As American Command of the Sea explains, the effectiveness of these two types of warships was greatly enhanced by communications or signal intelligence.
