New book, 128 pages, 180+ photos and illustrations, 1 set of scale plans. The Torpedo Boat Destroyers (TBDs) of the 1890s - the first destroyers - were among the most glamourous naval vessels ever built. With their remarkable speed, their connotations of David and Goliath, and their initial deployment against the Royal Navy's traditional enemy, the French, they caught the public imagination, while the command of one was coveted by all young naval officers. Drawing on Admiralty documents and plans, the author has compiled a brilliant collection of data on the early development of these vessels up to the River class of 1900. He also looks at the developments in the US, particularly the Bainbridge class with its distinctive raised forecaslte. With its Superb plans and drawings and entirely original research, this book is essential reference for all naval historians, enthusiasts, and model makers with an interest in the development of one of the twentieth century's most exciting warships.
