Rick Jacobs presents "Britain Alone: The Naval War in the Mediterranean from 1940 to 1942"

In June 1940 Britain stood alone, its naval strategy in tatters after the surrender of France. Many recommended abandoning the Mediterranean Sea to focus on defense of the Home Islands. Winston Churchill, the last paladin of the British Empire, insisted that it be held and used as a springboard to weaken the Axis powers. A number of desperate naval battles followed. Join Captain Rick Jacobs for the story of this epic struggle against what seemed to be overwhelming odds.
