SMALL BOATS & LARGE SLOW TARGETS: Oral Histories of United States Navy Amphibious Forces Personnel in WWII. After 50 years, at last we can learn how it was to be a Navy crewman on small landing boats and LSTs.

Click to EnlargeIt's about time! For fifty years we've learned the histories of the brave Marines and soldiers who charged onto hostile beaches from amphibious landing craft. At last we can learn how it was to be a Navy crewman on small landing boats and LST's. This book begins with the uncensored oral histories of five Boatswain Mate Petty Officers who brought LCP(R)'s and LCVP's into enemy fire at places like Guadalcanal and Normandy. Listen to the memories of Navy men who carried soldiers across the Rhine in landing craft. Learn how life was on the USS Heywood, one of the first American APA's in the South Pacific. Then discover the stories of five more sailors -- MoMM's and Firemen -- who crewed fat, slow, and always rolling LST's to deliver tanks and troops on defended shores. Softcover, 94 photos, 146 pages.
