The publication was specifically compiled to provide readers with the useful source of historical and technical information relating to the famous destroyers of "Fletcher" class. The main content is full of photographs of the destroyers in action; it also contains numerous line drawings of the weapon systems that used to be installed on them. The document is telling the glorious story of the "Fletcher" class destroyers, including a chronographic narrative of the naval battles seen by those destroyers. The names of the vessels are provided with respect to the naval engagements. In short, the boo will be very interesting not only to professional naval historians but also to the ship modelers willing to craft a model of the Fletcher destroyer or one of her sister-ships. They will find a very good resource for all modifications that have been made to the vessels throughout their naval careers. Jerry Scutts, the author of this nice and informative document, is telling the amazing story of these versatile and capable vessels. All technical characteristics are provided along with the drawings, data tables and illustrations by Joe Sewell and Robert Harrison giving readers a full picture. We recommend this publication for collection, or to be used for constructing the model.
