From Baird MaritimeThe Laforey Class destroyers arguably represented the zenith of British destroyers. Large, fast, heavily armed and impressive looking, they were also very successful at war.
This well written and illustrated book describes their conception, design, development construction and operations. It makes for an exciting and interesting story.
The Laforeys were very effective weapons platforms that were generally very well commanded and crewed. They contributed substantially to the success of the Allies in many theatres but, most particularly, in the Mediterranean.
The author has done an excellent job of returning these fine ships to life.
