As the fourth year of the war began, victory for the Allies was still a long way off. German submarines were sinking ships off the coast of the United States in what would become known as the ‘Second Happy Time’ for the U-boat crews, while Allied vessels were falling victim to Japanese aircraft and warships in the Far East.

However, convoys continued to get through to supply beleaguered Malta despite heavy losses to submarines and aircraft, and in the Pacific the US Navy inflicted defeats on the Japanese at the key battles of the Coral Sea and Midway, battles in which the major vessels never actually saw each other, fighting with carrier-borne aircraft instead.

'1942, The Second World War in Photographs' is the new book by Phil Carradice, and the latest title in Amberley's Second World War Photograph at Sea series.
Containing many rarely seen images, beautifully remastered, to tell the epic story of a World at War on the Seas.
