I haven't been keeping up like I should; I finished a book two days ago, being Osprey New Vanguard #162: US Destroyers 1934 – 45. Workhorses of the world's fleets, destroyers were needed to protect merchant and warships from submarines, as well as helping to screen capital ships in case of fleet actions. This book discusses the vessels that were planned before the lessons of WWII were learned. Pretty interesting read, with good photos and plates.
