   This perfect title prepared by Philip Kaplan together with Jack Currie, lets readers have a close look at the very rare photos obtained from the wartime archives. Nice book for everyone interested in the naval history - it features so many dramatic pictures of merchant ships and rare archive photographs. The main content of the book has been arranged in ten big and well illustrated chapters covering the development of the aircrafts, description of the sub-types and variants, providing some information of the F82 service during the Korean War, and some other interesting info, supplemented with the final chapter addressing the removal of type from the war theatre in 1952. A very brief contents - Merchantmen; Merchant sailors; Hunters; Will she starve?; Liberty ships; The hunted; Tanker; A cadet's story. Take some time with this publication and we are pretty sure you will not be disappointed. Real photographic images of the real merchant sailors, their activities, vessels they served, their duties and dangers - this all has been covered. The content of the publication presents a good combination of the nicely written narrative text and excellent professional photos that give the readers a full clear picture of the actual life of the merchant sailors of the past.
