My husband loves it. It was a great anniversary gift. Arrived quickly and amazing quality. Bigger than I expected.
In World War II the LST (Landing Ship, Tank) supported countless military operations.
First built to British specifications, the LST carried troops, vehicles and other cargo directly to shore.
No docks needed.
Instead, the LST propelled itself right onto the beach.
When it hit the sand, a large door on the bow would drop open to reveal an offloading ramp.
Once boots were on the ground it would seal itself and move to a safe distance.
Ships like this were a modern marvel of the time.
They traveled great lengths.
Managed heavy loads without so much as a whimper.
Time and time again they took a beating.
But they got the job done.
Today their countless heroic feats are etched in the walls of history and time.
