The Captain Class Frigates in the Second World War by Donald Collingwood.


The Captain Class Frigates in the Second World War by Donald Collingwood.

The Battle of the Atlantic was Winston Churchills area greatest of concern during the Second World War. By 1943 new tactics and technology, developed out of bitter experience, combined with the effect of long range maritime patrol aircraft were beginning to tip the balance in the Allies favour. But the dearth of modern escort vessels was still potentially disastrous; over 160 U-Boats were still at large to attack vital convoys of men and material. The Captain Class Frigates, seventy-eight sturdy, modern destroyer escorts, known affectionately by all who sailed in them as the DEs, built in the United States and leased to the Royal Navy, began to come into commission in January of that year and to fill that desperate, long felt need.
