Naval War College Review


Jeff Shaw


The Battle of the Atlantic has been thoroughly researched and exhaustively studied, especially by students attending the Naval War College. However, rarely has the epic campaign to defeat the German U-boat menace been viewed through the lens of the life and person- ality of one of America’s greatest liter- ary figures. In The Hemingway Patrols, Terry Mort offers a well researched ac- count of this great campaign, one that reads almost like an actual Hemingway novel.
