Destroyer Down An Account of HM Destroyer Losses 1939-1945 by Arthur S. Evans

His Majesty's destroyers had a long and costly war. Some eight thousand destroyer men did not survive. At the height of the war the Royal navy was commissioning four new vessels a month, which was only sufficient to replace those which had been sunk or severely damaged. This outstanding book contains the details of the majority of the sinkings that occurred throughout World War II and includes many first-hand accounts from the officers and crew involved.
