WWII at Sea


Back to HISTORICAL


Naval warfare in the Second World War involved several types of combat:

  • small-boat skirmishes, such as fighting E-boats in the English Channel, or in the Pacific, PT boats.
  • submarines vs. convoys, and escorts vs. submarines
  • gunnery duels, such as the battlewagon vs. battlewagon confrontations off Guadalcanal, or the hunt for the Bismarck
  • confrontations involving land-based or carrier-based aircraft, such as the Battle of Midway or the "Great Marianas Turkey Shoot."
