Inhaltsangabe: In spring 1941, when the Allied Merchant Navy was losing on average 130 ships a month, the unbreakable resolve of these civilian seafarers was all that held Britain back from inglorious defeat. Their courage and tenacity saved the lives of millions in the bleakest episodes of the War, and contributed substantially to some of the most celebrated Allied victories. Roy V. Martin describes in detail not only the most famous Merchantmen evacuations such as Dunkirk and Singapore, unraveling the truth from deep-rooted myth, but also the lesser-known evacuations in which hundreds of thousands of lives were saved, but which, in mainstream histories of the War, have been shamefully sidelined up to now. Also documented is the Merchant Navy's support of the landings in Africa, the Mediterranean and Normandy, where 1,000 merchant ships manned by 50,000 civilian seamen delivered troops, supplies and two prefabricated harbors. Time and again in moments of crisis, the Merchant Navy was called upon to shoulder the greatest burden, to suffer the greatest losses, and to salvage whatever possible from disaster; and yet their ranks, from 14-year-old boys to 74-year-old-men, were frequently neglected by the authorities and the public, and at worst, treated as expendables. This book aims to honor the seamen of the Merchant Navy for their colossal sacrifice, and to establish their story in its rightful place, among the most inspiring of the Second World War.

Inhaltsangabe:

This is the little known story of the essential support provided by merchant ships in World War II, including their role in the evacuation of Dunkirk. Much of the book is based on original research.

Buchbeschreibung Fonthill Media, 2012. Hard Cover. Buchzustand: New. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: New. During World War 2, the Merchant Navy's main task was to run the German blockade, bringing essential food, fuel and materials to a besieged nation. The civilian crews came from all parts of the Empire and beyond - more than one in six were killed. Even less is known about the part played by merchantmen in evacuations from countries that were overrun. They saved over 90,000 troops from Dunkirk and went on to rescue more than 200,000 troops and civilians from other parts of France. When Singapore fell, the Merchant Navy again helped many to escape. They moved men and materials for the landings of Madagascar, North Africa and the Mediterranean coast of Europe. A British government press release reported that 50,000 volunteer British merchant seamen manned over 1,000 ships for D-Day. They also manned salvage ships, rescue tugs and other specialist craft. Merchantmen in Action tells the story of these other achievements. Chapters include Singapore; the Norwegian campaign; Dunkirk; the Channel Islands; Greece and Crete; Sicily and Italy; the Normandy landings; the South of France, Gibraltar, etc, with detailed ship listing and human stories. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 156365
