Japanese Destroyer Hatsuharu
Lambert M. SurhoneISBN: 978-6-1320-0949-4;
Hatsuharu was the lead ship of six Hatsuharu-class destroyer destroyers, built for the Imperial Japanese Navy under the Circle One Program (Maru Ichi Keikaku). Three were laid down in JFY 1931 and the next three in JFY 1933. The remaining six ships in the plan were built as the Shiratsuyu-class. Construction of the advanced Hatsuharu-class destroyers was intended to give the Imperial Japanese Navy smaller and more economical destroyers than the previous Fubuki-class and Akatsuki-class destroyers, but with essentially the same weaponry.
