Although known as battle in fact it was the longest campaign during the World War II (from 3 September 1939 till 8 May 1945). Allies used the naval convoys to transport goods, equipment and troops from North America to Britain and Russia to help those countries keep up the fight against Germany. Hitler on the other hand did not have enough warships to face Royal Navy, so chose to use U-Boats to attack those convoys and thus cut off European Allies from supplies.
Battle of Atlantic was first of the technology races during World War 2 - at the beginning British Navy was unable to prevent the losses of the merchant ships, but the invention of ASDIC (active sonar mounted on destroyers) and adding escort ships to the convoys gave them the upper hand. Germans were improving the technology of their submarines, later chose the tactics of not single sub attacks, but using several U-Boats at the same time (units called Wolfpacks), which made it much harder for the escort ships to stop them.
With time airplanes became important factor in that battle - Germans had very limited air units capable of attacking the convoys, on the other hand Allies improved their use of long-range planes (such as PBY Catalina) to attack U-Boats surfaced and often even submerged.
While during first months of the war U-Boats were serious threat to the very existence of Great Britain together with the improvement of technology they soon became almost obsolete and their effectiveness dropped significantly.
