Durazzo bombardment

 On 2 October 1918, eleven submarine chasers took part in the Durazzo engagement, the one major offensive of the US Navy in WWI, in which the enemy submarine base at Durazzo, Albania (Durres) was destroyed. The story of the Durazzo engagement has been covered by a number of sources, including several of the contemporaneously published books on the subchasers such as United States Submarine Chasers, by Hilary Chambers.
