DESCRIPTION: The authors have made good use of first hand accounts 
and provided an exceptional photo-plate section to support their 
text. This book encapsulates the incredible service of RN destroyers 
during WWII  – Most Highly recommended.

The destroyer and the light cruiser were to the RN in WWII what the 
frigate had been in Nelson's day. There were never enough of them. 
They were worked very hard and, on occasion, placed in positions 
were they could only die gloriously.

HMS Havock was one of the most famous British destroyers of WWII 
and her crew fought with great bravery in the Atlantic and 
Mediterranean. In a short career, she won an impressive eleven 
battle honours. As a destroyer, she was always at great risk and 
had a short life prospect. Losses in the first two years of war 
were painful for the destroyers, but she survived and fought on to 
1942, making a notable contribution to the sea war in the 
Mediterranean.

The authors and the fifty surviving crew who contributed to the 
making of this book have produced a very readable and motivating 
story of a ship that fought hard and died hard. This is a book that 
deserves to be read
