From the cover: From the grim days of the Battle of Britain to the launching of the Allied invasion armada in June 1944, the English Channel was the worlds most bitterly contested waterway. Ports, harbours and coastal towns on either side were subjected to attack by the opposing air forces; long-range artillery pumped heavy-calibre shells across the Straits of Dover, bringing civilians into the front line; warships and aircraft sought to destroy convoys in passage, resulting in short and furious engagements that produced moments of great bravery on both sides.
