No warships ever evoked the vision of beauty, speed and grace quite like the Tribal Class destroyers. These ships inspired awe in all who saw them; and those who sailed in them never forgot the experience. Nor did they forget the pride taken in being a member of the select few who became members of the ship's company of one of these greyhounds of the sea.
Of the three services that used the ships the Royal Canadian Navy took them to the pinnacle of perfection through improvements and modifications to all aspects of armament and living standards.
This book relates the history, background and progression of the class through their two decades of service.
