Using a combination of MTB's and Fairmile D Motor Gunboats the Royal Navy based first in Malta and later Italy fought the German and Italian Navies for control of the sea.
I own several of Dudley Pope's books naval history, each on a different topic or event. His books to me are marked by their easy reading and by the incredible level of detail which the author somehow manages to cram in them. Dudley Pope paints a very vivid picture until you're ordering Flag 4 on a dark night in 1942.

These small boats because of their speed and stealth were able to restrict axis shipping movements, especially at night when there was no air cover.
Overall a very well written book.
