Exploits of the U-Boat-hunting “Q Ships” of World War I. These well-disguised, commonplace boats of every description were packed with hidden deadly weapons and dispatched to hunt German U-Boats.

This is a very good copy of the Sixth Printing of the First English edition, without dust jacket, recently deaccessioned from the library of the New York Yacht Club, with the club’s stunning vintage bookplate on the front pastedown, along with a discreet Case and Shelf notation and a tiny vintage bookshop sticker. There are no other markings.
