Early in the day yesterday, while I was waiting for the patients to be roomed in my office, I finished reading another ebook. This was Osprey New Vanguard #74: British Motor Torpedo Boat 1939 - 45. There's a certain romance to these boats; small crews, fast runs, raiding. There's also the history of that force in the US Navy, and the relationship that PT boats had to JFK that adds something to this. This book, of course, doesn't include the US actions, but it does discuss to a degree the US PT boats that were sent to Britain as part of Lend-Lease. I found it an interesting read.
