This is a great read! Action filled. It start's out in the dark days of the Pacific War after the boming of Pearl Harbor, when America was feeling at it's lowest. And this mosquito fleet was all america had to stop the on rushing Japanese. Then progresses all the way to the end of the war. The nightly battles with 'The Tokyo Express' and covert missions to sneak coast watchers' in behind enemy lines was riveting. The author tell a great story and also writes about the shift in tactics and boat construction, from defensive to offensive.

A very well written book. It puts you in the middle of the action. Graphic and seemingly accurate. AT time you could feel the tension that the crews felt on these plywood bombs. You are there beginning to end in the PT Boat Fleet action. Succinct and not a page I would skip over if I readit again. Which I may very well do too. A VERY good writer! Wish I could see more off his work.
