THE

NEVER-ENDING

HISTORY OF THE 

USS FORREST SHERMAN DD-931

 THE LAST OF THE GREAT GUNSHIPS

FROM US NAVY RECORDS

AND THE FOND MEMORIES OF HER CREW
 

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