Destroyers of World War Two: An International Encyclopedia

Ön Kapak
Naval Institute Press, 1988 - 320 sayfa
"Fast, compact and formidable, destroyers were in the thick of the action in every theatre of operations during the Second World War. Destroyers were required to perform a wide range of duties, often of the most hazardous nature. They were effective, versatile warships, but there were never enough of them, and losses were high." "Illustrated with more than 480 line drawings and photographs, Destroyers of World War Two is the first large-scale, comprehensive encyclopedia to detail in one volume all the destroyers extant, completed or laid down during the period 1939-45 by the navies of the world. Each class is described under three headings - Design, Modifications and Service - while full data tabulations are also presented, including builder, laying-down, launching and commissioning dates, notes on the fate of each ship and particulars including dimensions, armament and performance. This book, fully international in scope, offers information on over 2,500 World War Two destroyers."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
