THE DESTROYER

A destroyer is a lovely ship, probably the nicest fighting ship of all.

Battleships are a little like steel cities or great factories of destruction.   Aircraft carriers are floating flying fields.   Even cruisers are big pieces of machinery, but a destroyer is all boat.

In the beautiful lines of her, in her speed and roughness, in curious  gallantry, she is completely a ship, in the old sense.
