@Kingpin61 Thanks for all the good books comrade. I had been searching for the Destroyermen series for like forever. THANKS A LOT FOR THOSE BOOKS:Smile_medal:

Also, do you by any change have "Castles of Steel" or anything by James D. Hornficher aside from "The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors"? I don't have a credit card so... Yeah, I have failed to get those books since the beginning of time. :fish_palm: 

Finally, I have PDF copies of "The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors" and "The World's Worst Warships" trapped in my phone, if I can get them in my computer I will put them in here if you are okay with that.

Yes, Friedman's US DD book is listed in the thread, and while I have paper copies of freidman's US BB book, I haven't found a PDF version online.
