Allied Coastal Forces, now a recognized classic work first published in 1990, remains the only publication to deal comprehensively—in words, photographs, and drawings—with the technical detail of motor torpedo boats, PT boats, motor gunboats, launches, and submarine chasers. This second volume covers sixteen Vosper MTB designs and the US 70ft, 77ft and 80ft ELCO designs.

About the Author

Editorial Reviews

“This also is a must have book for anyone interested in coastal warfare and a great companion to Volume 1.” —Thomo’s Hole
“This volume is the type of reference work that ship modellers and persons interested in the history of na-vies and small boat actions will likely want to own themselves, for ease of access and consultation. It is still among the best books on the Fairmile, a very useful and under-appreciated wartime coastal craft.” —The Northern Mariner / Le marin du nord
