IF, YOU THOROUGHLY RESEARCH…THIS CAMPAIGN…ARCTIC, THE MURMANSK RUN, KOLA INLET, THE WHITE SEA, and ALL ETC., ARCTIC CONVOYS…RA, PQ., etc., WHERE THE ALLIED MERCHANT VESSELS, WITH THEIR ESCORTS-THE ALLIED WARSHIPS…HAD TO BE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE ENEMY-AXIS WARSHIPS…EARLY IN THE BATTLE OF THE ATLANTIC/1939-1945, U-BOATS…RIGHT TO THE VERY END OF THE WAR/MAY 08, 1945, AXIS-LUFTWAFFE AIRCRAFT-BOMBERS, TO ALL VERY MUCH A STAND A STEADY WATCH-AVAIL!!!

At the BEGINNING OF THE ARCTIC CAMPAIGN-NAVAL WARFARE, CAPITAL WARSHIPS…BOTH AXIS and ALLIED WERE PRESENT, AND UNTIL ABOUT 1942-1943, YOU EVEN SEEN THE ODD ALLIED CRUISER-WARSHIP WITH THE SMALLER DESTROYERS, CORVETTES, MINESWEEPERS…until about 1944-WHEN ALLIED DESTROYERS, FRIGATES, CORVETTES, MINESWEEPERS…WERE ESCORTING THEIR CHARGES/MERCHANT VESSELS LADEN WITH SUPPLIES, UNTIL THE VERY END OF THE BATTLE OF THE ATLANTIC, IN 1945!!!
