4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Andre Lieven on April 17 2007
Format: Paperback
Its a short basic history of the famed World War 2 Canadian Tribal class

destroyers. One can still visit one of these fine ships in Hamilton, Ont.,

these days. As a short history, this work is good enough, though it makes

me miss the long now out of print full sized hardcover of "The Tribals",

which had more detail, and covered all the Royal Navy & Royal Australian

Navy ships of this historic class of ships, as well as the RCN ships.

Among the errors in this book is the claim that 13 out of the Royal Navy's

16 Tribals were lost in the war, and that the RN survivors served in Korea. Neither claim is correct, as only 12 RN Tribals were lost in that war, and the four survivors were all disposed of by the RN by 1949 ( The Korean War started in 1950 ). Also, 2 pounder guns were not 3 inch sized weapons, they were 40MM (1.57 inches).

One thing that this book could have also used would have been a chart

displaying the dates when the ships were built, served, and disposed of.

Tribals of the RCN is not a well illustrated as Iwould have hoped. But, as an abbreviated history of the Canadian Tribals, it's worth reading.
