HASH(0x98895540) out of 5 stars The Coastal Forces Bible 17 Mar. 2014
By WeezeyBob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was the first book to look at the types of craft used by the Royal Navy's Coastal Forces during the second world war.
It is still one of the best. It provides a solid summary foundation of classes of boats with excellent photos and OK drawings to call out basic features of each type. There is a listing of boat numbers by type and the first ever effort at understanding camouflage for these boats and time period. It is not a history. I was like many of these 70s Almark publications kind of a summary and field guide to these boats. It is especially excellent considering it dates to the early 1970s.
HASH(0x988d5558) out of 5 stars It has practically all the costal craft used by the Royal Navy, more for modelers and less for historians. 23 Feb. 2015
By Paul F - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fairly old publication, that I hope other publishers would follow its format.
It has practically all the costal craft used by the Royal Navy (with the exceptions of lend lease US PT Boats and the Steam Gun Boats).
This is more a visual and technical reference than any other thing. It has plan view diagrams of most MTB, MGB, ML, and HDML including the Fairmile variants (with the exception of the landing variant). This is not a book of stories of bravery and achievements of the costal forces crews and their exploits, but a reference of their mounts. I would say that this is more for modelers and less for historians.
