Torpedo boats had important feats during World War I. In Spain during the civil war, the number of these boats used by both sides was not very relevant. During World War II and later, these types of small speedboats continued to operate in the Strait of Gibraltar area.
There is very little information available about anti-submarine boats. They were small, relatively fast units that were specially seized or built and designed to protect roads and areas near the ports in order to avoid attack by submarines that might lurk.
This book is devoted to reviewing the history of the Navy’s torpedo boats and submarines throughout their history, particularly during the Civil War and in the immediate post-war period.
