USS Cassin Young (DD-793), A Fletcher Class Destroyer. An illustrated operational history from WWII to Korean and the Cold War. by J. Scott Harmon.
USS Cassin Young (DD-793). An illustrated operational history from WWII to Korean and the Cold War. by J. Scott Harmon. A Fletcher Class Destroyer named after Medal of Honor recipient Captain Cassin Young.
This ship has an honored history for its WWII and Korean War action, and it now enshrined as a permanent museum ship at the Charlestown Navy Yard, Boston. This book's importance also stems from its depiction, in narratives and photos, of a typical Fletcher Class Destroyer, the combatant vessels which served the US so well in two wars.
Details in the book include a plan view drawing of a basic DD Engineering Plant; a 15" fold-out full color plate view of the Cassin Young in WWII camouflage; and a 15" fold out engineering drawing of the ship's side view and top side view.
Tin Can Sailors, students of naval history, modelers, and many others will appreciate this book.
11"x8-1/2", 55 superb photos + color ship profile.
