Description:

This paper explains ll the major combatants of the war at sea in World War II entered the conflict with outdated naval doctrine and then points out that although the addition of modern weapons were vital to the outcome of the war at sea it was the Allies? ability to utilise these weapons through changing tactics and rapid adaptation that was decisive. The paper further suggests that although the Allies? initial responses to the new type of ocean warfare with which they were faced was slow this situation quickly changed and argues that the Axis powers were much slower to adapt and continually made crucial errors in estimating their opponents capabilities. Finally, it is argued that, in the end, it was the phenomenal American ability to produce, in combination with the efficient use of signals intelligence, that destroyed or nullified the Axis powers at sea.
