Here's a list of the books in my collection that offer details about the ML, the RNVR, and/or the Motor Launch Patrol both during and after World War One. It includes some fictionalized accounts that are interesting primarily for entertainment and also one or two books that are only tangentially related to the ML's in that they give a notion of service in small, armed ships during the war.
