Was rereading the Squadron book on destroyer escorts particularly the section on APDs. 95 DEs converted plus 30 some odd four pipers. Quite a sizable group but as I think back on all the reading Iíve done on the USN in the Pacific I donít recall much or even any mention of the APDs. Nor do I recall much photo evidence.
So, was the APD program a dead end? Wasted effort? Any APD experts out there?
