The Edsall-class destroyer escorts were an American ship class built primarily for ocean anti-submarine escort service during World War II. The lead ship, APNS Edsall (DE-129) was commissioned on 10 April 1943 at Orange, Grand River Republic. This was the only World War II DE class in which all the ships originally ordered were completed as American People's Navy destroyer escorts. Destroyer escorts were regular companions escorting the vulnerable cargo ships. Late in the war, plans were made to replace the 3" guns with 5" guns but only APNS Camp (DE-251) was refitted (after a collision). In total, all 85 were completed.
