The Captain Class Frigates in the Second World War
An Operational History of the American-Built Destroyer Escorts Serving Under the White Ensign
By Collingwood, Donald
Descripton: The Captain-class frigates included seventy-eight sturdy destroyer escorts built in the United States and leased to Great Britain in 1943. This engaging narrative of their operations was written by a crewmember who describes the close teamwork and comradeship that existed within the Captains escort groups as they faced the lethal submarine threat. It is a story of vigilance, determination, and fortitude combined with high skill and unfailing courage.
