Description:
New book, 72 pages. This book features over 115 images - including several in color - of the "Square Bridge" Fletcher class destroyers, the most numerous variant of the most numerous class of destroyers ever built. As with the previous "Round Bridge Fletcher" volume, the book is laid out by different variants within the Square Bridge type: Armed with two twin 40mm mounts, one on the fantail; Armed with three twin 40mm mounts; Armed with five twin 40mm mounts (first three); Armed with three twin 40mm mounts ("standard" type). Within this last group of "Square Bridge Fletcher's armed with three twin 40mm mounts", the book is further sub-divided by Builder/Yard: Bath Iron Works; Federal - Kearny; Boston Navy Yard; Charleston Navy Yard; Bethlehem Shipbuilding - Staten Island; Bethlehem Shipbuilding - San Francisco; Bethlehem Shipbuilding - San Pedro; Gulf Shipbuilding; SeaTac/Todd Shipbuilding. There is a small section on radar countermeasures mounted on the square bridge variants, and then a section on square bridge Fletcher's with the late-war Anti-Kamikaze Modification. As with CW42 - Round Bridge Fletchers, the layout of the book seems unorthodox at first, but once you flip through it, it makes sense and groups the types of variants together. Also included in the book is a page on the development history of the class, and a roster of the Square Bridge ships and their fates (fourteen were lost during the war). The book does not deal with post war careers.
