About This Item

Annapolis, Maryland: Naval Institute Press. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket. 1999. First Edition: First Printing. Hard Cover. KB#015018: Bookjacket/dustjacket now protected by a New Mylar Cover. Boards and pages are clean, unmarked, bright, tightly bound and sharp cornered. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. Stated First Printing. "In a desperate attempt to counteract the deadly onslaught of U-boats in the Atlantic, President Franklin D. Roosevelt initiated a secret project in 1942 that called for the use of decoys disguised as merchant ships. These heavily armed warships were referred to as Q-ships, and very little information about them has been recorded over the past fifty years. Now a U.S. naval officer who served in one of the mystery ships, a decoy-configured freighter by the name of USS ASTERION, lifts the shroud of secrecy that has surrounded the mission for so long. His book examines for the first time the origins and operations of Project LQ, as the secret plan was known." : 6.25 x 9.25 in.: 236 pages .
