: 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?
