  • Risinal
I don't understand why this book has no reviews since it came out in 2008. I just finished it and highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in historical Destroyer actions. Stern captures the excitement from one of the first actions back in 1905 and continues with selected actions through the attack on the USS Cole in 2000. In addition to great text, he has included many photographs and a few maps..

It is the kind of book that I will likely reread in a few years.
