Hi all,
Al Ross' book, Allied Coastal Forces of WWII, Vol. II Vosper MTB's and US Elco's is for sale on ebay in the UK. I don't see these come available often. Here's the link on ebay.

David;
If I were to write a review for this book, I would have to honestly say, not a week goes by that I don't refer to this book for something. I have had this book since 1996, and had it shipped from the Naval Institute when I was in Panama and building my PT 48 model. It is an excellent book.
Take care,
TED

I have heard so many good things about this book, but I feel foolish to say I have never had the chance to view it........

There are two for sale now. You don't see them often because people don't give them up. My wife may make a lot of money off my copy some day. But not on my watch! :-)
