These 1000-ton vessels were fast, highly armed, and designed to seek out the enemy--a brave and dangerous task. In this meticulously researched book, Parkin describes the history of each individual ship from launch to its final hours. Through these stories we travel from the stormy North Atlantic to the calm Mediterranean, from the East Coast of the United States to the vast reaches of the Pacific, on destroyers from the USS Reuben James to the USS Callaghan. Seldom has a book so well depicted the enormous scale of our simultaneous war against Germany and Japan--and the dedication of the young fighting men who carried it out. We join these men as they engage the enemy and enact pitched battles with German submarines, Japanese kamikaze pilots, or long-range cruisers." -- Page [4] cover."@en ;
