The Fairmile D motor torpedo boat was a type of British motor torpedo boat (MTB) designed by Bill Holt and conceived by Fairmile Marine for the Royal Navy. Nicknamed "Dog Boats", they were designed to combat the known advantages of the German E-boats over previous British coastal craft designs. They were bigger than earlier MTB or Motor Gun Boat (MGB) designs (which were typically around 70 feet) but slower, at 30 knots compared to 40 knots.

The Fairmile 'D' Motor Torpedo/Gun Boats were vicious little fighters that packed as much firepower as a World War I destroyer onto a 110 ton hull. Despite their ungainly appearance, these vessels have proved a source of fascination since the end of World War II, and they were the subject of the fifth book in Conway's "Anatomy of the Ship" series.

The book opens with with a history of the development of Fairmile's A, B, and C motor launches, the evolution of the D design throughout the war, descriptions of each type of gun and torpedo that could be mounted, and the particulars of the machinery. A number of tables are also included, showing which boats were constructed at which yards, the completion date and fate of each "D," detailed specifications of each weapon, performance data for the B through D Fairmiles, variations in machinery installations, and the scantling dimensions for the B through H models. The next section includes 23 large and fairly obscure photographs that Lambert managed to acquire during his research. These include photos of the prototype "D" under construction, a number of "in action" shots, and images of some of the onboard weapons.

John Lambert is well known for his superbly detailed plans of British naval weapons and smaller British warships, and the drawings section (the last 67 pages), is where he really shines. This section opens with a series of profile and cross-section views of the Fairmiles A, B, and Cs, along with profiles of 15 representative D boats. Section B includes sectional and plan views of an early "D" gun boat, and of a late-war combined gun/torpedo boat, and plans of the hull lines. Section C features sectional views showing the arrangement of the hull structure, and perspective views of bulkhead, planking, and frame construction. Section D focuses on machinery, with diagrams of the water cooling, bilge, and lubricating oil systems, the fuel tanks and their piping, fire protection equipment, propeller shafting, the engines and their carriers, and the exhaust system. Section E depicts the arrangement of the bridge, masts, and some of the electronics, while Section F includes 24 pages of plans of all the weapons used by these boats, including cutaway views of the inner workings of the Mark VIII torpedo. The final section shows the location of each deck fitting, depicts the different types of guardrails and several deck fittings, and details the hull markings and draft lines.

This is a fine book for model builders and naval buffs, but it has a few minor but irritating flaws. Quite a few of the plans are unlabeled, forcing the reader to jump from the drawings section to the introduction to truly understand what they're looking at. There's also a heavy emphasis on weapons, and relatively few plans of the boat's structure. Although I have an interest in naval weapons, and there's nothing really wrong with diagrams of the six-pounder's ammunition feed rail, cutaways of an Oerlikon magazine, and close-ups of a Vickers MG gas plug, I'm more of a naval architecture guy. The view of the hull structure are very nicely done, but they mostly just whetted my appetite.

My issues aside, this book is a goldmine for anyone interested in Allied coastal forces. The drafting quality is excellent, the introduction and photographs provide a lot of excellent supporting detail, and it introduced me to an obscure and impressive breed of fighting ship, of which none survive today. The format can be awkward, but this is pretty much the go-to book for anyone modeling one of these boats or looking for more info on them.

Mr. Lambert is an expert on Coastal Forces craft, specifically those of the British Royal Navy. That is readily apparant from reading this book and his being a draughtsman puts him into a league of his own when it comes to line drawings which he does from actual plans from the Admiralty.

These two factors combine to make this book a "must have" for those who are interested in these types of vessels.

classic reference book,a worthy addition to any one with interests in coastal craft.

The British Fairmile Motor Torpedo Boats were 120 feet long, half again the length of the American boats. They were also much more heavily armed, much more like the German E-Boats. During World War II they were mass produced and used in a wide variety of tasks from air sea rescue, mine laying, coast line patrol, etc.

In this book, John Lambert gives an exhaustive coverage of the boat. His concentration is on the D model, the most heavily armed, but he also covers the earlier craft that preceeded the D.

The book is profusely illustrated with what seems like most, if not all, of the pictures ever taken of the boats. With his encyclopedic knowledge of the vessels, many of the illustrations are commented with details of changes made to the boat after it left the factory. In addition, there are numerous line drawing of the various boats that show precisely the details sometimes obscured in photographs.

Anything that has John Lambarts name on it is already "outstanding" and his book on the Fairmile "D" boats is no exception.
From the first page to the last there is nothing but information backed up by drawings and photo's.

Simple put if you read and re-read this book often and review his drawing in details you could actaully walk around the boat in your head as if you were really there.!!!! And that is detailed....what ever the price buy it.

John Lambarts drawings are the best in the world...ship modelers use them other authors used them in the books..."None Better"

One of the first in the series but really, really, well researched! Not that most people would be particularly interested in the every single detail of this particular type of torpedo boat, it's just really well written. By far the most passionate of this series.
This type of boat was mass produced both in kit form in the US and in the UK. It was a coastal defender and also a long range rescue boat for downed airmen in WWII. The complete history of the boat, as well as the fate of every vessel. Excellent photos and line drawings that are the signature of this series. Every major variant and perfect for a scratch modeller.

This is the best book about british Fairmile D as I know. Ideal for modelers (contains a thousands of drawings). John Lambert is still the best author of books from Anatomy series. If You want to make a model of british Fairmile - this is the most important book for You. Very recommended. I can't find the words to thank Mr. Lambert for writing this book.
