About the Book

This, the sixth volume in this ten-volume set, continues its complete timeline of significant events in the history of the torpedo boat in all navies and all oceans. This volume, which covers the year 1942, includes forty-six illustrations and rare photographs in a full-color interior. The narrative covers the role of the torpedo boat as the world convulsed in the decisive battles of 1942 in the Pacific, the Mediterranean, and the Soviet Union. Every significant action involving a torpedo boat is described with a pinpoint reference to a specific authoritative source. From “own goals” where one torpedo boat sank another, to experiments with nerve gas and rockets, this book provides a fascinating look at the day-to-day operations of the heroic crews who faced machine guns, torpedoes, and naval gunfire protected only by speed and flimsy wood or steel.
