USS Stevens (DD-86) in dazzle camouflage
Here we see the Wickes class destroyer USS Stevens (DD-86) in her First World War era dazzle camouflage. The Stevens was active from June 1918 until the end of the war, and this picture must date from that period or the immediate post-war period, before the camouflage was painted over.

The standard history of the development of American destroyers, from the earliest torpedo boat destroyers to the post-war fleet, and covering the massive classes of destroyers built for both World Wars. Gives the reader a good understanding of the debates that surrounded each class of destroyer and led to their individual features.
