Anglo-Danish Society

Thursday 1st June 2017
AGM, Reception & Talk

The title of the talk was “The Naval War in The Baltic 1939 1945”, presented by Mr Poul Grooss - previously the Danish Defence Attaché in London, a former Captain in the Royal Danish Navy, a military researcher and lecturer.

This book has just been published in English.

Poul Grooss chronicles naval warfare in the Baltic region during WWII and covers such major events as the siege of Leningrad, the Soviet campaign against Sweden in 1942, the three wars in Finland 1939–44, the Soviet liberation of the Baltic states, and the German evacuation of two million people from the East, and the Soviet race westwards in 1945. In his book Grooss also explores topics such as Swedish cooperation with Germany, the Germans’ use of the Baltic to train U-boat crews for the battle of the Atlantic, the secret weapons trials in the remote area of Peenemünde, and the RAF mining campaign that reduced the threat of new and revolutionary German submarine technology. He explains how messages from Bletchley Park were the basis for the RAF attacks on German coastal regions. Moreover, Grooss provides the political and military context of the war in this theatre and he describes details of ships, radar, artillery, mines, and aircraft.
