From the foreword: Less than 35 years after World War II, the heroic saga of the Patrol Torpedo Boat (PT Boat) begins to fade from our memories, even though their effectiveness and versatility were among the sensational in the annals of the United States Navy. The toll of enemy vessels taken by these speedy and reckless craft is out of all proportion to their small size and relatively low cost. Although more than 800 PT boats were built in the United States during the war, only a few have survived the attrition of time."
I really liked this book, because it is about a piece of history which is unfortunately not so well covered. However this books tell a lot of this history and covers their technical development pretty good. Additional there are several pictures some of which have never been published before. I can only recommend this book not only to historians but model-builders like me.
