Full Description:

In this handsomely illustrated work, the well-known ship expert Robert Sumrall traces the origins of the U.S. Navy's Sumner-Gearing-class destroyers through half a century of changing naval technology.  He shows the great advances made in ordnance, fire control, and steam engineering in a destroyer class that served as a standard for post-World War II destroyer design and development.  Long out of print, this classic work once again is available to ship enthusiasts.  Nearly three hundred illustrations, many in color, enhance the authoritative text.

Robert F. Sumrall is the coauthor of Iowa Class Battleships: Their Design, Weapons, and Equipment.  He served in eight Sumner-Gearing-class destroyers during forty years of naval service.
