Book Description

5 Aug 1996
This is the story of the fast patrol boats that kept Britain's coastal waters free of enemy craft during World War II. The motor gun boats and motor torpedo boats were to the Royal Navy what spitfires and hurricanes were to the RAF. Training, life ashore and conditions at sea are described, and the book details the development of motor gun boats and high-speed motor launches. It describes the layout, armament, crew and role of these "little ships" and covers events such as Dunkirk, Dieppe, D-Day landings and the daring raid on St Nazaire.
