Response to Pretty Outstanding

Isn't this what they did in WW2 to help ward off the German subs? Seems as if they could have destroyer escorts front, rear, and sides and that they could do a good job of protecting a group of cargo ships in a long line. Radar should help give plenty of early warning of attacks. I would suggest that this duty could be shared by many of the nations involved and needing protection of their ships.
