Destroyer! The very word conjures up the traditional image of naval warfare with lean ships, bristling with guns and torpedoes, steaming at speed to attack an enemy battle fleet. Unfortunately, romantic images such as this bear little relationship to the reality of any form of warfare, particularly naval engagements in the 20th century. True, in World War 1 each side deployed major surface fleets screened by numerous flotillas of destroyers and there were many fast and furious actions. However, between 1939 and 1945 the nature of naval warfare underwent a fundamental change, mainly due to the massive increase in the effectiveness of airpower (both land and sea based) and consequently the duties and attributes required of the destroyer also changed. In the post-1945 era the situation has been made even more complex by the development of new weapons including guided missiles, the staggering evolution of radars and other electronic systems, the increased performance and lethality of modern aircraft, and of course the advent of the nuclear powered submarine.

My returns policies

I have found, so far, that the majority of my buyers are genuine. For my part I try and describe the books as fairly as possible - I am not a professional - and do not like buyers to feel dissatisfied. 

I am happy to pack together multiple buys made within a seven day period and post at cost as long as total value of purchases in the packet does not exceed the Royal Mail's built in compensation, which at the moment is £39.00.
