Each navy has its own section, with a chapter for each class, covering design evolution, major conversions, and war service. A special feature describes the guns, anti-submarine weapons, and radar sets that were fitted to the escorts. There is also a glossary of terms and a complete index to the ships by name. Illustrated with over 330 photographs and specially prepared drawings.
