    Howdy guys!

    Was wondering if I could get some advice. Have a teacher from my old high school looking to see what's out there on the European Theater. Helping my brother(he's doing a presentation Friday on the Normandy Landings for her) for a reading list. I wanted to see what's out there for the Battle of the Atlantic. Mostly a general overview though specific events are ok. I've got a bunch in my personal stock, but I know I'm missing quite a few. So, any books that have stood the test of time, feel free to shout it out.

    Thanks!

    Business in Great Waters - The U-Boat Wars 1916 - 1945. John Terraine.

    As per title, deals with U - Boats the Battle of the Atlantic in a wider context than just 39 - 45. Very readable.

    I've got The Battle of the Atlantic by Donald Macintyre, an old book, been around for awhile, but has some good overviews in it.
