At the beginning of the Second World War, these vessels were operating playing the role they were actually designed and constructed for, namely fast torpedo attacks conducted at the night time.
By the middle of the war, most of them have been converted into gunboats to be utilized for attacking the enemy landing barges. Finally, closer to the end part of the war some of those boats were coming from the factories sporting the rocket launchers... This book will be very interesting for every naval history enthusiasts due to the information it contains; note that there are so many illustrations and sketches in the book as well as data tables and other supplementary info. Excellent photographs will let you feel the spirit of the war. All classes of the PT boats have been covered by the author, making this publication a sort of encyclopedia of the PT boats.
