From the cover: “In the immediate period after the Second World War the Royal Navy had a large fleet of relatively modern surface ships and one of the largest classes available to the Admirals was the Battle Class Destroyers.

The Battle class was the epitome of wartime design with features developed through the struggles of world-wide conflict. They were handsome, powerful ships capable of being deployed anywhere in the world, with members of the class serving in every ocean.

In-depth research has allowed the author to cover the careers of each of the destroyers of the Battle class. The stories have been enlivened by memories from ex-members of the ships’ company’s.”
