Frigates, initially dubbed "twin-screw corvettes" were designed by William Reed of Smith's Dock company. They were to prove their worth as ocean escorts and were important contributors to victory over the U-boats.Perhaps because of their late arrival on the scene, wartime photographs of frigates are now scarce. The purpose of this book is to reproduce more than one illustration of each ship, especially those that were rebuilt to "Prestonian class" configuration after the war."
