French Destroyers 1922-1956, John Jordan & Jean Moulin.
A splendid study of the French Torpilleurs d'escadre and Contre-Torpilleurs
(large 'super destroyers') of the interwar period, impressive warships
that had limited wartime careers. Covers both the technical features of
the ships and their service careers, supported by excellent plans and
contemporary photographs. I can’t imagine anyone every publishing a
more detailed book on this topic in English.
