From the year 1066 the English Channel has provided Great Britain with a natural defensive barrier, but never more than in the early days of the World War Two. This book relates how the Royal Navy defended that vital seaway throughout the war. From the early days of the Dover Patrols, through the traumas of the Dunkirk evacuation, the battles of the Channel convoys; the war against the E-boats and U-boats; the tragic raids at Dieppe and St. Nazaire; the escape of the German battle-fleet; coastal convoys; the Normandy landings and the final liberation of the Channel Islands.

The Channel, which Smith also calls the Narrow Seas, is of course much more than just an anti-tank ditch, though it did serve that purpose quite well. He also pulls no punches. Both the RN and RAF leadership come in for appropriate criticism. This book discusses the extensive destroyer battles that happened in the English Channel during WW2. It shows how until the British applied new technology AND new tactics, they usually lost. It wasn't enough to have radar and air superiority - it took need tactics to defeat the very skilled Kreigsmarine.
