I read this book because recently I had read Brinkley"s "The Last Ship" and found it very interesting. This book is ok--my father served on an LST during WWII so I had a particular interest in his description of life aboard this barely seaworthy transport. The book does give insight into a not well known aspect of our difficult landings on the western coast of Italy---the landing at Salerno and the subsequent pinning-down of Allied troops is not one of the prouder episodes of our WWII performance, partly due to command mismanagement. One person found this helpful.

1966) A novel by William Brinkley. Written by the author of DON'T GO NEAR THE WATER, the title of this novel refers to the ninety sailors and nine officers who manned an LST off Anzio during WW II. During the two months of the story, the LST 1826 achieves its thirtieth landing under heavy fire. Then it is torpedoed in half- but, miraculously, both halves are later joined together again. Back at sea once more to deliver fifty four nurses to the front, the 1826 is torpedoed twice, this time with no survivors. The novel begins as a series of loosely related anecdotes.

I first read this book in the early 70's in a US navy ship off the coast of Vietnam. I felt the author had captured the feelings of a sailor at sea. Some days filled with boredom, other days filled with danger and some days that go on for days with out break. I was moved. It is one of my top ten reads.

I am familiar with LST's and wanted to learn more about life on board in wartime. The story was entertaining but I would have liked more of the day to day operations.

Excellent. Highly enjoyable
Captain America
A must read. chronicles the heroic efforts of a Navy crew in a little known theatre of operations--the Med off Anzio
Froststalker
