USS Talbot (APD-7) preparing to refuel from USS Chandeleur (AV-10)
Here we see the Wickes class destroyer USS Talbot (APD-7) coming alongside USS Chandeleur (AV-10) to refuel, on 6 April 1943, early in her deployment in the Pacific after being converted to a fast transport. The number of crew members on deck gives some idea of how cramped conditions must have been on these converted destroyers.

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.
