This is an excellent reference for the three Hunt class destroyers in Polish service during World War Two. Text is in English and Polish with a lot of interesting photos. A history of each ship is provided as well as an account of the diving off Valetta to recover the ship's bell from the wreck of ORP Kujawiak in 2015 along with some great photos of the wreck.
An unexpected treat was finding 3D graphics by the authors of ORP Kujawiak, Krakowiak and Slazak as well as HMS Badworth. Four separate sheets of plans are also provided at 1/200 and 1/350 scale for each of the ships.
The book is really useful accompanying builds of the IBG 1/700 Hunt class destroyer models. Unfortunately I received the book after I had already built Krakowiak but it helped me catch errors and improve Slazak and Kajowiak. I'm going to start over with a new Krakowiak build to improve the model

such books are extremely helpful to build a correct version of these ships - often only photos are showing details and adaptation of specific ships
