It is about what it says on the cover, nothing more or nothing less. There are some nice drawings and pictures, and technical information, but also about how the vessels were used. It is also easy to read.

Found it a very interesting only down side, was it only dealt with LCAs, was hoping it covered other versions of assault landing craft, i.e. LCM(1) and the American version, other wise a very detailed account of their build and actions. Excellent drawings throughout.

HASH(0x9e332390) out of 5 stars Short, Concise History of Ampibious Assualt Craft 17 Dec. 2013
By matt8386 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Lavery has written a short, concise for it's price, but informative and enjoyable book. The author traces the history and development of the Assault Landing Craft built and used by the British in WWII. (Not to be confused with the Higgins Landing Craft) and its use from 1938-1956.

Unlike their American cousins, once the British had decided on the design, few modifications were made. These boats gave good account of themselves and served in all theaters, primarily in Europe. This book has many very clear B&W photos, the line drawings, though small, are very clear and provide perspective on the boat's design. I especially enjoyed reading about the crew duties, training and experiences on these craft.

Recommended addition to your library if you have an interest in seaborne operations, landing craft, amphibious assault.

HASH(0x9d8e4eac) out of 5 stars Great History 16 Jan. 2013
By WeezeyBob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have several of Mr. Lavery's books and he is a master of naval technology and history. These important little craft are covered in great detail in all areas but one. During their service lives these ALC/LCAs sported a wide range of colors and camouflage paint. While design, history and construction are covered in great detail it would have been nice to have some color profiles showing the various colors and markings sported during their careers. It is the only thing that keeps this and several other of his ship histories from being the best possible references.
