The Farragut ( DD ) Class
The Farragut class opened a new design phase for american destroyers. The four-stacker type was replaced with a decidedly more modern approach.
Three of the eight ships in the class were lost in World War Two; the Worden grounded at Amchitka, and Hull and Managhan were lost to a typhoon.
