319 BRITISH FRIGATES AND ESCORT DESTROYERS: 1939-45

319 BRITISH FRIGATES AND ESCORT DESTROYERS: 1939-45
by Konstam, Angus

1-995319

Outlines the history of the nearly 200 Hunt-, Loch-, Bay-, and River-class escort destroyers and frigates, revealing how crews fought, and what life was like on board. Using archive photos, detailed colour profiles, a Hunt-class cutaway, and battlescenes of the ships at war, he explores the key role played by these small but deadly escorts.

Escort destroyers were essentially small destroyers optimized for anti-submarine warfare, with speed and anti-surface weaponry sacrificed, while frigates were simpler, designed so they could be built quickly in civilian shipyards. These warships were key to protecting convoys in the Atlantic Ocean where their range and seagoing qualities made them well-suited for operations.
