Inhaltsangabe: River-class frigates have been sadly overlooked by historians, despite playing a crucial role in anti-submarine warfare and in the transatlantic convoys of the Second World War, and featuring in Nicholas Monsarrat's acclaimed 'The Cruel Sea' alongside their predecessors the Flower-class corvettes. In this comprehensive and ground-breaking study, author Brian Lavery, a National Maritime Museum Curator Emeritus, seeks to reinstate the reputation of these important ships.
With characteristic attention to detail and painstaking research, the author draws on the evidence of ship plans, naval documents, and eyewitness accounts to present a complete and exhaustive study of the River-class frigates. Illustrated with plans, historic photographs and specially commissioned illustrations, this book crosses the boundaries of naval, technological, and social history. Lavery examines the on-board living and working spaces, anti-submarine radar and Asdic equipment of these craft and their vitally important role in the Battle of the Atlantic.
Vom Verlag: A valuable resource for historians, naval enthusiasts and anyone with an interest in the Second World War at sea.
