Made famous by her final commanding officer, John F. Kennedy, PT-109 is one of the most celebrated warships in American history. Revisiting the story of the future president and the boat's demise, John Domagalski also tells the story of the ship's two previous officers, Bryant Larson and Rollin Westholm, during the battles around Guadalcanal. In these mainly nocturnal fights, when the Japanese navy was at its apex, PT-109 would venture out to probe enemy strength—always risking swift destruction. This book provides the complete record of PT-109 in the Pacific, as well as a valuable glimpse of how the American Navy's came into its own in World War II.
