Description or summary of the book: This authoritative book sketches the historical development of amphibious warfare, using real examples to illustrate the great range of scale, from raiding to full-scale invasion, with historical examples. It highlights the many coordinated activities necessary for a successful operation, from surveying and minesweeping to fire support, fighter direction and tri-service control. Two illustrated country-by-country directories cover landing ships, which transport personnel, cargo and vehicles from shore-to-shore, and landing craft, which focus on ship-to-shore movements. This instructive volume containing 530 photographs will provide enthusiasts and historians with a lively and engaging guide to a fascinating subject.
