This excellent work covers in detail the 14 U.S. Destroyer Escorts of the Cannon class that were transferred to the Free French Navy in 1944. The bulk of the book covers their careers in WW 2 and the immediate post war years, including service in Indochina, the 1956 Suez invasion and Algeria. Superb detailed photos, incl many interior on deck shots, line drgs, ships histories incl modifications.
