“P.T. COMMANDER” By Eric Higgs. (Fiction) The big brass didn’t believe Lt. Buck Leander’s PT Boats would be worth a damn in naval combat––and they weren’t too sure about him, either. But when the Japanese attacked in December 1941, the untried Leander and his fragile, little boats were soon virtually all that was left of America’s Navy in the Philippines. Though Japanese destroyers ruled the Pacific, Leander’s PTs put up a valiant, impossible fight against the full might of the enemy. 1985 Paperback edition. 365 pages, no photos maps or index.
