American Patrol Torpedo - or PT - boat crews served valiantly in every theater during WWII. From the Aleutians to the Mediterranean, these men harassed enemy shipping, launched attacks against much more formidable warships, rescued downed air crews, and spirited General Douglas MacArthur to safety from Corregidor Island in March of 1942. PT boats also laid mines and smokescreens, coordinated air-sea rescue actions, and conducted intelligence and raiding operations. This volume chronicles the evaluation, use, and eventual destruction of the US PT boat fleet through 180 photographs, many of them color. Coverage includes ELCO, Higgins, and Huckins boats
