Fire Sugar, Fire Pudding

Author(s): Colin Amodeo

NZ & World War II | Secondhand

Pat Clark-Hall's letters from a Torpedo Boat 1943-1945

His torpedo boat was roughly the size of a large civilian cruising launch. She carried torpedoes named Sugar (starboard) and Pudding (port side). In this plywood hull with ammunition and fuel, the crews knew they were manning a floating bomb.

This very readable story is balanced with wicked humour history and heroism. It opens a window on the sea war in the Mediterranean and brings to life the extraordinary war story of a well-known Cantabrian. Includes over 100 illustrations, photos and maps. First published 2009, Auckland, NZ
