US Patrol Torpedo Boats: World War II (New Vanguard)
US Patrol Torpedo Boats: World War II (New
Motor torpedo boat development began in the early 1900s and the vessels were first put into active service during World War I. However, it was not until the late 1930s that the US Navy commenced the development of their Patrol Torpedo or PT boat program. The PT boat, or the "mosquito boat" as they were sometimes known, was originally envisioned for attacking larger warships with torpedoes using its "stealth" ability, high-speed, and small size to launch and survive these attacks. However, they were actually employed more frequently in a wide variety of other missions, many which were unforeseen by developers and planners, including rescuing General MacArthur and his entourage from the Philippines. Often taking on larger and better armed enemies these craft became famous for punching above their weight and were firmly thrust into the limelight by John F. Kennedy who while serving as a lieutenant on a PT-109 in the Pacific Theater heroically saved his fellow crew members winning him the Navy and Marine Corps Medal. This book examines the design and development of these unique craft, very few of which survive today and goes on to examine their role and combat deployment in both World Wars.

Revell has been entertaining, inspiring, and educating model builders for over 70 years. Revell brand is a testament to the popularity of detailed plastic model kits that are affordably priced. Launched in 1943, Revell initially produced a wide range of products, including train sets, scale buildings and “action pull toys” recreating some of America’s most popular automobiles. However, the brand found its niche with a line of fast-building “Highway Pioneers” plastic model car kits in the early 1950s. After their success, Revell focused exclusively on making models that were as authentic as they were enjoyable. Most recently we are introducing our newest line, Revell Junior Kit, which allows children as young as age 5 to assemble and dis-assemble for hours of creative play. Revell manufactures model kits suitable for all ages. We are proud to carry on the tradition of accuracy and provide a challenging, and enjoyable pastime for all model hobby enthusiasts.

Italeri Motor Torpedo Boat PT-109 Model
Every historian and American who grew up in the 50's, 60's and 70's can associate PT-109 a WWII torpedo patrol boat and John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the President of the United States. On April 23, 1943 Lieutenant Junior Grade John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was given command of PT-109. They took part in the US invasion of Rendova Island/New Georgia. PT-109 was rammed "Cut in half" and left in flames by an enemy destroyer the Amagiri on August 2nd, 1943. Miraculously, only two crewmembers were killed and only two others were badly injured. The seamen reached Plum Pudding Island, 3.5 miles away. Surviving on coconuts and with the help of local islanders, the remaining crew and their Captain were rescued. In 2002, the wreckage of PT-109 was located.

PT Boats: The US Navy's Fast Attack Patrol Torpedo Boats in World War II (Legends of Warfare: Naval)
PT Boats: The US Navy's Fast Attack Patrol
Patrol Torpedo―or PT boats―captured the public's imagination during WWII due to the daring exploits of their crews. Built not of plywood, as many believe, but rather of mahogany planks, and powered by a trio of Packard marine engines, these vessels operated in every theater, often facing opponents many times their size. The use of PT boats to evacuate General Douglas MacArthur and his family from the Philippines, a story dramatized in the movie They Were Expendable, put the PT boats and their crews in the public forefront, as did John F. Kennedy’s loss of PT-109 and the subsequent rescue of him and his crew. This book looks at all the PT boat configurations used by the US Navy during WWII through rare archival photos, augmented by images of the few remaining vessels of the type. Part of the Legends of Warfare series.

Torpedo! (The Silent War Book 3)
Torpedo! (The Silent War Book
The USS Sharkfin was twelve hours out of the Strait of Gibraltar on course 278 degrees true, destination New London. The men on sonar watch weren’t listening for the approach of an enemy. They were primarily concerned with the sonar search patterns that were being beamed out ahead and to each side of the submarine’s bow. There was a chance that the sonar operators might have heard the whining, high-pitched noise of a torpedo racing up the submarine’s wake but it was a remote chance. The Sharkfin’s big seven-bladed propeller was turning fast enough to drive the huge submarine at a steady twenty knots, making just enough noise to almost muffle any sound that came from directly astern. The torpedo zeroed in on the spinning propeller and exploded with a roar....The stricken submarine shuddered and slowed, its interior utterly still, filled with water, as the Sharkfin coasted downward on a long, planing descent into the black sea.It was an unprovoked attack, a deliberate act of aggression. When Vice Admiral Mike Brannon of the U.S. Navy received word that the wreck of the Sharkfin had been found, with a gaping hole in its stern, he could only conclude that the Soviets had, without warning, attacked and destroyed a U.S. nuclear submarine. He could not let the incident pass unre...

History - Heavy Metal : PT Boat
History - Heavy Metal : PT
Pound for pound, the Patrol Torpedo (PT) boats were WWII's most heavily armed fighting boats. Screwed and glued together on a hull made of wood, these 50 tons of fast fighting fury were hated by the Japanese who nicknamed them "The Devil Boats of the Night". With their three powerful marine engines and speedboat designs, they took on the enemy at close quarters with greater frequency than any other type of surface craft--from firefights with coastal barges to protecting the invasion fleet at D-Day. And they attacked the enemy from the freezing seas of the Aleutian Islands to the treacherous waters of the South Pacific. Using unique archive film, reenactments, and extraordinary interviews, here is the story of how this wooden wonder struggled for early recognition, but through the brilliance of its design, daring of its missions, and courage and sacrifice of its crews would play a major part in WWII.
