Editor's pick
13 November 2002

Sometimes when we run across an interesting/unusual/informative book, especially an old and out-of-print one, we like to bring it to your attention. Here's one:

Behrens, C. B. A. History of the Second World War: Merchant Shipping and the Demands of War. London: HMSO and Longmans, Green, 1955

Ms. Behrens, in this hard-to-find volume of the "Civil Series" of the British official histories, provides a scholarly analysis of Allied shipping issues with an unsurpassed wealth of hard data in dozens of tables and charts. A fundamental source for any serious investigation of the subject.
