Almost all the action in the opening months of the Second World War took place at sea. This book gives a dramatic account of the naval war, narrating such incidents as the sinking of the armed merchantman Rawalpindi, the freeing of Allied prisoners from the Altmark, the scuppering of the German pocket battleship Graf Spee and the beginning of the submarine war, with the daring sinking of the aged battleship Royal Oak in Scapa Flow by a U-Boat.
