Its good that the author has gathered together these stories while members of the crews were still alive plus some personal recollections. I was looking for some history on one of my Grandad's wartime escapades, this book is part of the information I needed. Very interesting and informative book about a subject which may just disappear into the mists of time.

But the Americans achieved some very short times on the production of these destroyer escorts. The book is an interesting insight to these vessels delivered to the Royal Navy. It records their achievements and the tragedies, as well as some humourous aspects of their careers. Effectively the US delivered us a whole fleet of ships in a matter of months. Delivering these ships to the RN started to show the stretch experienced later in the war. Could we build ships that fast these days? Could we man them if required? Hopefully we would find better weapons than the 3" gun these ships had.

As the title says, the book covers the Captain-class Frigates of the Royal Navy during World War 2. The book gives brief histories of each ship and groups that they operated in. This includes commissioning dates, work-up trials and trans Atlantic crossings where they went to different groups and their service in these groups. A good, well researched book about a single class ship, but lacked a bit of detail for me.

This book presents a view of the Battle of the Atlantic that no other does; the view of the thousands of British sailors already accustomed to three years of war and food rationing, who were sent to American ports to pick up American-built DEs built for the Royal Navy. The author's account of a meal in the dining room of a US Navy dormitory for British sailors is both heartbreaking and hilarious. Also interesting is his assertion that the British soldier's and sailor's exposure to the relative abundance and egalitarianism of American life was part of the reason for the militance of demands for change in post-war Britain.
Also hilarious is the account of the accidental shelling of Boston Harbor during a shakedown cruise of one of the new DEs.
The rest of the book is a straightforward account of the Battle of the Atlantic, with it's patient hunt for German submarines in rough, freezing seas.
