Landing ships and landing craft transport military forces plus their logistic requirements to their chosen invasion site.

This book offers a detailed catalogue of every landing craft ever constructed in Britain or built in allied countries and deployed in Britain, with production and deployment statistics, and war losses.

81 pages of very loosely typed text, which could easily fit in 20 pages of normal book text, and only 4 photographs (those on the cover).
Hardly worth the 10 quid it cost me, so what to say of prices sometimes seen on Amazon marketplace (up to to £152.86 plus shipping!!) except they are downright robbery.
