In a wartime navy of giant carriers and battleships, tiny wooden subchasers manned mostly by inexperienced reservists did not command much attention. Yet these 110-foot warships performed vital chores for the fleet everywhere there was action in World War II. They led landing craft right up to the assault beaches, protected larger ships from fire, fought off air attacks, swept for mines, laid down smoke screens, and patrolled the sea for killer submarines. One such doughty little ship, subchaser 692, in the subject of this book.
