I just finished a new book I got a few months ago, not long after it came out.
It is titled Hunters and Killers Vol. 2: Anti-Submarine Warfare from 1943
Here is the Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Hunters-Killers-Anti-Submarine-Warfare-1943/dp/1612518974/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1474421179&sr=8-4&keywords=anti+submarine+warfare
I have not read volume one, as I was primarily interested in Cold War and Modern ASW. This book basically covers the Battle of the Atlantic from mid 1943 till the end of the war, the Pacific War, and the Cold war.
One interesting part of this book is that the authors claim that the Soviet Navy, had the Cold War turned hot, never intended to wage a "third battle of the Atlantic" by sending subs out into the ocean to raid convoys.
They claim that the Soviets recognized that they would not have the same advantages the Kriegsmarine had (bases in Norway and France), and the U-boats still failed to stop the convoys.
Instead, the Soviets planned to target convoys in more littoral areas like the North Sea as well as concentrating attacks, possibly nuclear, against destination ports in Europe as a way of countering trans-atlantic convoys.
I bring this up because I was quite surprised by this, and wanted to know if anyone else has read this in other books, as it does counter a lot of perceptions, and makes a lot of the WWIII Convoy battle scenarios seem a little unrealistic given the apparent Soviet views on the situation.
