Product Description & Reviews

Built by the Electric Boat Company, the Motor Torpedo Boat or 'PT' was a potent, versatile and highly effective weapon. Small in size, lightly armed and relatively cheap when compared to other combat vessels, the patrol boats sunk or damaged several Japanese warships including a battleship, several cruisers, two submarines and over 15 destroyers. They also shot down enemy planes, savaged enemy shipping and transport, and conducted commando-style raids on enemy facilities. Created during the war by Elco, this softcover book traces the development of these nimble craft, and showcases their achievements in combat. Additional chapters include a review of crew training, a profile of Electric Boat and its founders, and more. Richly illustrated with numerous photos and artwork. This brand new, softbound reprint represents the first time since WWII that this rare book has been available.
