From military mavericks, underwater warriors, and a swashbuckling sea wolf to daring raids, great escapes, and shocking defeats: these real-life stories capture every nuance of the world of war. Vividly written by the finest historians, and by those who survived those often-terrible times, each book offers a unique perspective on battle...and the courage that turns soldiers into heroes.

In one of World War II's great naval battles, the Royal Navy finally tracked down, cornered, and sank The Scharnhorst -- a potent symbol of Nazi seagoing power that had wreaked havoc on Allied convoys. This gripping military tale reveals how the cruiser was lured out of her Norwegian haven on Christmas Day 1943...and in a climactic fight, perished under the big guns of the battleship Duke of York. Eyewitnesses recount this crucial victory that was helped by the cracking of German codes.
