About this title:

The Allied assault forces in World War 11 were carried by the greatest armadas in history. The author tells how these were created, what techniques were used and about the men who made the landings. A study of the landing craft, equipment, amphibious landings, marines, sailors and troops taking part in this type of warfare between 1939 and 1945. The Japanese were the only nation with experience of amphibious landings but through extensive training the British and Americans quickly learned this art of warfare. Landings from the sea formed the linchpin of some of the greatest operations of the Second World War – at Normandy and in the Pacific for example – and the author provides a detailed examination of the vessels, their crews and assault forces as well as the landings themselves – German and Japanese as well as those of the Allies. Illustrated with 50 photographs and 24 drawings, etc.
