PT Boats At War, World War II to Vietnam, written by Norman Polmar and Samuel Loring Morison. the publisher is MBI Publishing Company. 


This book covers all of the action that PT boats have seen during this time period. Because of the great number of WWII PT boats, the majority of the book is about this era. Starting back in page 93, 8 pages are dedicated to the history of the PTF and some of the actions they saw during Vietnam.

These are some of the photos that are included in this section.
