By Peter Scott (Author)

First published in 1974, this now classic account of the fight for control of the English Channel and the southern North Sea is told by Sir Peter Scott, a MTB (Motor Torpedo Boat) commander, who saw action throughout World War II. More than a memoir, his book tells the whole story of the small ships and their legendary crews during fierce encounters with the Germans. The bravery of the crews of these small ships became legendary and the casualties that were suffered during brief and fierce encounters were horrific.
