.,." [Patrol Torpedo] boats were considered to be expendable boats and so were not provided with much in the way of comfort or armor. They relied on their speed and maneuverability to get them out of trouble ... In his book ... Rottman describes the various major types that were used as well as the organization of units, the way the boats were operated and a bit of what it was like to have to serve on one of these boats.
