This, the fifth 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 1941--"the hinge of fate"--includes seventeen illustrations and rare photographs in a full-color interior. The narrative covers the role of the torpedo boat as World War II spread throughout Europe, Asia, the Atlantic, the Pacific, and the Mediterranean. Unlike many MTB books which are focused on a single nation or campaign, this book treats S-boats, "D" boats, Soviet TKAs, and US PT boats on the same plane. The chronological presentation gives a vivid feeling for the way these boats were actually being used all over the world.
