Destroyer Cossack Detailed in the Original Builders’ Plans


The subject of this volume is one of the famous ‘Tribal’ class, large destroyers intended to substitute for cruisers in many roles. Their complicated evolution is fully covered for the first time, with plans of the different proposals and alternatives considered, along with an outstanding collection of detail drawings ranging from magazine arrangements to a view of the variations in upper deck fittings across the whole class. Wartime modifications are also included. Cossack was the obvious choice to represent the class, not just because of her well-known exploits like boarding the German supply ship Altmark in 1940, but also because the technical documentation of the ship is particularly rich, much of which is reproduced in this volume.
