What Others Are Saying
Jeff Bacon, Captain, USN, Retired and creator of "Broadside" and "Greenside".
"Just got my brand new book about LST 479 - one of the unsung heroes of the Pacific Campaign in WWII. ... What a tremendous read!"
Ross Dickerson, Commander, USN., Retired:
"This is a great read and highly recommended. Most of us big-deck Navy types "poo-poo" the Gator Navy, but without them we don't win in WWII. Period! It details the crews commonly manning MOST naval ships at the time: young, greener than green, fresh off the farm and operating a brand new, untested ship class. You think your 15-year old has growing pains? Compare that to the LST!!"
