    The German submarine force was sinking Allied shipping only with great difficulty in the face of surface escorts and particularly Allied air power. The convoy system was a success but in order to truly win the Battle of the Atlantic the Allies had to take the offensive and strike at the U-boats on Allied terms.

Muller is a professor of military history at the USAF School of Advanced Air and Space Studies, Maxwell AFB, Alabama.
