Battle Of The Atlantic WWII Illustrated Map Blake

£450.00

Original vintage World War Two poster - Battle of the Atlantic / Bataille De L'Atlantique - featuring a dynamic design by Fredrich Donald Blake (1908-1997) depicting military planes and parachute drops, navy warships in convoys with explosions at sea and hangars, railway links and factories on a map of Great Britain and Europe with banner locations and descriptions, the bold black title text on a banner in French above and information on the battle below: Une Bataille Incessante Fait Rage Dans l'Atlantique / An incessant battle rages in the Atlantic The Axis U-boat submarines are designed to isolate and starve Great Britain to surrender. But as the offensive of enemy submarines progressed, so too do Britain's defensive measures. A growing number of escort ships protect the convoys. The U-boat's Atlantic Coast submarine bases are being subjected to intense attacks by Allied air forces and the entrances to their ports are being mined from the air. Their factories are being paralysed by bombs. All these counter measures enabled Mr Churchill to say, when reviewing the submarine campaign in May 1943: "Our destruction of the U-boats ... far exceeded anything that had been done so far; these last three months, and in particular the past three weeks have broken all records." Printed in English and various languages in 1943/1944 for distribution abroad. Good condition, folds, tears, foxing, small paper losses.
