The only thing that ever frightened Winston Churchill during the war, he once wrote, was ‘the U-boat peril’. Masterminded in Liverpool from the now carefully restored basement bunker of Western Approaches Command, the Atlantic campaign was crucial to ensuring a steady supply of men and provisions from America.
