2.0 out of 5 stars FULL OF ERRORS
Clearly the author has little technical knowledge of British MTB's. He omits the twin .5" Vickers HMG mounting from the text, substituting instead the .3" Browning. He also omits the .303 Lewis and Vickers K gun mounts. the author also states that the 6 pdr. gun was not used during the war, yet there are many photographs in other works of the Fairmile D MTB/MGB or the...

2.0 out of 5 stars FULL OF ERRORS, 2 Sept. 2011
This review is from: E-Boat Vs Mtb (Duel) (Paperback)
Clearly the author has little technical knowledge of British MTB's. He omits the twin .5" Vickers HMG mounting from the text, substituting instead the .3" Browning. He also omits the .303 Lewis and Vickers K gun mounts. the author also states that the 6 pdr. gun was not used during the war, yet there are many photographs in other works of the Fairmile D MTB/MGB or the British Power Boat MGB's carrying this armament.
The photographs are limited to views of the Vosper standard designs and seem particularly weighted toward the late war 73ft boat, including several views of the post war prototype type 2! There are no photographs of the early war boats or the Fairmile D, a design that was specifically built to combat the German E-boat. No mention is made of the US Elco MTB's that were operated By the Royal Navy either.
A dark grey background has been chosen for the colour profiles that renders the detail unclear. And finally, the photograph of sailors playing board games on an MTB's deck, is not what the caption states. It is clearly the free-flooding deck of a small submarine!
read Home Waters MTB's at War by L.C. Reynolds instead.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another half cock offering form from Mr williamson, 15 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: E-Boat Vs Mtb (Duel) (Paperback)
Another Offering from Mr Williamson which shows a lack of consistancy or knoledgable proof reading. It becomes obvious in the desciption of British MTB armament. The 0.5 in Vickers machine gun, the basic gun armament of all earlier MTBs is almost completely ignored while a twin Browning ,30 in set never standard and rarely if ever fitted is mentioned.

2.0 out of 5 stars Motor Torpedo Boats, 18 Sept. 2013
This review is from: E-Boat Vs Mtb (Duel) (Paperback)
E-Boats vs MTB...is about the British Coastal Forces battling the German Coastal Forces during WW2. It is colorful simple text booklet. It doesnt contain alot of meat. It is a teaser to get reads to learn and read more. Has some nice photo and color techincal plates. BUt if you want a real history this book isnt it.
