AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In every battle Wind Rode had come out on top. Weapons, whether aircraft cannon or submarine torpedo or destroyer guns, were aimed and fired by men. The destroyer's men had proved superior in the handling of theirs. Now the train of successes had been broken. They had six big guns and multiplicity of other weapons: they should have got those Jap aircraft. As it was a lucky shot from the Oerlikon saved them from disaster. It was not seamanship or training: simply a problem of morale. For the coxswain. - Publisher's blurb, back cover
