13 SHARKS: The Careers of a Series of Small Royal Navy Ships, from the Glorious Revolution to D-Day
Grainger charts the careers of the thirteen vessels that have served the Royal Navy under the name HMS Shark. The first Shark entered service in 1699 and the last was sunk in 1944 (having the dubious distinction of being the only Allied vessel lost on D-Day). The author illustrates the changes in the Royal Navy and war at seas across almost 250 years.
