The author includes official USN and Herreshoff Mfg. Co., executive corrispondence concerning the construction and delivery of the first torpedo boats -- very insightful stuff! All the US Navy's early torpedo boats -- their builders, cost to build, armament, and dementions are grouped in an easy to read chart. Span-Am war stories, period graphics. Recommended for readers of USN and Spanish-American War history.
