USS Barney (DD-149)

This picture of the Wickes class destroyer USS Barney (DD-149) gives a list of the ports she visited during her first period in commission, which included a spell serving in the Black Sea and even a trip up the Danube. Her Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships entry doesn't mention this trip at all!

U.S. Destroyers: An Illustrated Design History, Norman Friedmann . The standard history of the development of American destroyers, from the earliest torpedo boat destroyers to the post-war fleet, and covering the massive classes of destroyers built for both World Wars. Gives the reader a good understanding of the debates that surrounded each class of destroyer and led to their individual features.
