Conference: Decision in the Atlantic – King’s College London

May 17, 2013 - May 18, 2013

In the history of warfare few campaigns have been as long, as complex or covered as large an area as the Battle of the Atlantic did in the Second World War. The contest for allied maritime communications began on the first day of the war in 1939 and continued until the German surrender in May 1945. On the seventieth anniversary of the climax of the battle, this conference aims to draw together international scholarship with a view to highlighting recent approaches to its study and the campaign’s emerging role in the wider historiography of the war.

Speakers include: Professor Andrew Lambert, Dr Marcus Faulkner, Dr Alessio Patalano, Malcolm Llewellyn-Jones, Naval Historical Branch, Nicholas Rodger, All Souls College, University of Oxford, Eric Grove, University of Salford , Richard Gimblett, Naval Command Historian, RCN, Stephen Hart, Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, David Kohnen, US Naval War College, RI

Attendance of the conference is free, however registration is necessary and the number of places is limited. These will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Visit the King’s College London website for more information. Please the full conference programme here.
