Examining the largely overlooked history of River-class frigates, this comprehensive, groundbreaking study seeks to reinstate the reputation of these important ships and the role they played in the Second World War. With attention to detail and painstaking research, the book draws on evidence from ship plans, naval documents, and eyewitness accounts to present a complete and exhaustive study of the River-class and the people who worked on them. Illustrated with plans, historic photographs, and specially commissioned illustrations, it crosses the boundaries of naval, technological, and social history, making it an invaluable resource for historians, naval enthusiasts, and World War II buffs.
