The USS Stevens (DD-479) was one of the 175 Fletcher-class destroyers, which were considered one of the finest World War II warships of that type. What set her apart from most of the standard Fletcher-class destroyers was her aircraft-carrying capability. In May 1940 six of the Fletcher-class destroyers were selected for conversion into aircraft-carrying ships. The upgrades included installation of Mk VI pneumatic aircraft catapult for embarked OS2U Kingfisher float planes.


"This book will be of great interest to ship modelers and naval historians alike."
