Summary

A look at how Nazi U-boats' efforts to sever transatlantic supply lines and the Allied firebombing of German cities affected the course of the conflict as efforts were made to develop new weapons and strategies to bring a rapid end to hostilities. The British and American focus on destroying the enemy's infrastructure resulted in a high number of civilian deaths, while the Germans' plan to throttle their most stubborn enemy by attempting to be victorious at sea ultimately failed thanks to technological advancements in the UK.
