Ian Allen London. 1st Edition 1971. Practically everyone knows of HMS Cossack's magnificent exploit in a Norwegian fiord in February 1940 when her crew rescued 299 captive British merchant seamen from the Altmark. Cossack was just one of 27 Tribal Class destroyers which served in the Royal Navy and the Royal Australian and Royal Canadian Navies from 1938 to 1969. They were seen by many to be the finest of their type. The Tribals probably saw more action over a longer period of time, and over a greater area of the globe, than any other class of destroyer. They took part in almost every Home Fleet and Mediterranean action, the D-Day operations, the East Indies, the South-West Pacific amphibious landings, the Battle for Leyte Gulf, the surrender of Japan and the Korean War. Technical details are pro- vided, together with lists of commanding officers and pennant numbers, and the ship's crests. There are also more than 100 photographs and the book contains a foreword by Admiral Sir Deric Holland-Martin, GCB, DSO, DSC, who commanded both Tartar and Nubian. The author was at the time of writing Deputy Keeper of the Department of Education and Publications at the Imperial War Museum. It was while working there on the preservation of historic ships that he met Captain Bruce, who has preserved the RCN Tribal Haida in Toronto. This comprehensive, exciting account of the Tribals is the result of that meeting. Fine condition. Original dust jacket over brown cloth covered end boards. 160pp. 240 mm 160 mm.
