   The destroyer, a comparatively small vessel of great speed and moderate armament, is one of the most recent additions to world navies, but it has evolved to become the most numerous and important type of surface combatant in the forces of the world's major maritime powers in the present day. Even so, far fewer studies are released on the development of this type of ship that can be larger warships such as battleships and aircraft carriers. This fact is partly the result of the sense of glamour that surrounds the larger, more powerful vessels. Many of these studies examine the history of warships in general where destroyers are dealt with in only a single chapter that, through the nature of these works, is a relatively small part of a larger whole. These works, although many are of good quality, have some drawbacks that detract from their usefulness in highlighting the history and importance of the destroyer. This work seeks to remedy the problem of coverage through the use of secondary sources to include technological, wartime, social, and diplomatic and political histories as part of a larger whole that examines the development of the destroyer from its inception to the modern day.
