Description

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 predeccessors 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. 255 pages PB.
