Description

Andrew Jackson Higgins' New Orleans boat-building firm, Higgins Industries, constructed numerous vessels for the US war effort during WWII. Among them were 78-foot Patrol Torpedo (PT) boats. Although not as well publicized as the 80-foot Elco PT boats, the 209 boats built by Higgins fought alongside their New Jersey-constructed counterparts, earning a reputation for ruggedness in the Atlantic, Mediterranean, and Pacific. This volume showcases the details of Higgins PTs preserved in Massachusetts, Texas, and even an operational example in Oregon, the sole operational WWII PT in its original configuration.
