About the Author

ARTHUR C NICHOLSON is an American lawyer and naval enthusiast who has been fascinated by fast minelayers since he was a boy. In researching this book he has been assisted by members of the Fast Minelayers Association and the families of men who served on them. This book follows his study of Churchill and the loss of Prince of Wales and Repulse.


"This entertaining, well written and immensely interesting history represents the bulk of the book. Included, as is typical of histories of this type, are a wide range of photographs, diagrams and maps. Particularly well done is a series of exquisite views of the six ships of the class in various guises and layouts. The story introduces the human element throughout with liberal quotes, photos and anecdotes from the crews who served in the ships from captain to ordinary seaman. The book is well produced, attractively laid out and well written. I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone with an interest in this class of warships."--The Northern Mariner "Arthur Nicholson's new book is therefore welcome in its detailed recording of the exploits of what were, indeed, very special ships.... Very Special Ships can be recommended as a well-researched and well-written operational history of a remarkable class of warship." --Warshipsas part of the publication's Naval Books of the Year
