Since the end of World War II the old categories of destroyer and frigate
have tended to merge, a process that this book traces back to the radically
different 'Tribal' class destroyers of 1936. It deals with the development of
all the modern destroyer classes that fought the war; looks at the emergency
programmes that produced vast numbers of escort vessels, then analyses the
pressures that shaped the post-war fleet, and continued to dominate design down
to recent years. Norman Friedman is renowned for his ability to explain the
policy and strategy changes that drive design decisions, and his latest book
lives up to this reputation. Not content to merely describe the many classes in
full technical detail, he uses previously unpublished material from his research
in many archives to draw a new and convincing picture of British naval policy
over the previous half-century and more.
