The authors of this publication have assembled a good quick reference for PT Boat modelers and enthusiasts, with these fifty pages on United States PT Boats that participated in World War Two. The book contains valuable text part and many color and black-and-white photos. There are numerous photographs allowing the reader to trace the various PT boat designs together with their subsequent improvements. Such boats also served in other theatres, but they are best remembered for their work in the Pacific. The book must be extremely useful for kit modelers, who may use the photographs as some sort of reference for the location of various equipment pieces as well as armament these PT boats were outfitted with. An excellent visual reference source that will definitely serve as a very useful addition to any collection. This release of the paper provides a brief yet quite comprehensive overview of the American PT boats. The content of the volume is remarkably informative and is covering a broad variety of boats. While the text part of the book has been minimized, it contains a huge number of images covering every single type of the boats that were deployed during the Second World War together with the equipment installed on them, armaments, schemes, deck arrangements and other supplementary technical information.
