In this tenth volume of his magistral History of United States Naval Operations in World War II Admiral Morison carries the battle of the Atlantic from the spring of 1943 through to victory when, as the announcement of May 28, 1945, put it, "Merchant ships by night will burn navigation lights at full brilliancy and need not darken ship."
