Wikipedia: Battle of the Atlantic

Filed under: — admin @ 12:40 am

Battle of the Atlantic can refer to either of two naval campaigns, depending on context:

  • World War I — Battle of the Atlantic (1914–1918), sometimes referred to as The First Battle of the Atlantic.
  • World War II — Battle of the Atlantic (1939–1945), sometimes referred to as The Second Battle of the Atlantic.

A Third Battle of the Atlantic was envisioned to be part of any Third World War that arose out of the Cold War. Trans-Atlantic convoys would have to be protected from the Soviet Navy and as a result, the Royal Navy and the U.S. Navy developed anti-submarine warfare capabilities. This affected much of the two navies’ operational planning.
