              Good Paul sure you will be satisfied. Found one minor thing a bit 'nit picky' perhaps, you possibly would not notice it, one guy remarked about the smell of Diesel on a LCA! THe thing was they ran on Petrol. He must have been on one of those American ones that looked like a floating garbage bin. Ken.

                  You have got it, where the Cox'n and engine minder stood up high on the back. They were classified as an LCM 3, but the Americans used them a lot as troop carriers. Glad I did not get lumbered with those B . . . . .s!!

                          • After some threats to "just bill me" I finally fulfilled the requirements of my military bookclub membership. I just ordered the following:

                            Armored Thunderbolt: The US Army Sherman in World War II by Steven Zaloga

                            The Bloody Triangle: The Defeat of Soviet Armor in the Ukraine, June 1941 by Victor Kamenir

                            One Continuous Fight: The Retreat From Gettysburg and the Pursuit of Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, July 4-14, 1863 by our own Eric Wittenburg, J. David Petruzzi and Michael Nugent

                            Anyone have any insight on the first two? I've heard how good that last title is from folks who already have it.............

                              That's one that can be read more than once. Great book!

                              • The book on Truman is excellent!! I am reading: "The Associate" by John Grisham. Not particularly interesting; seems to follow a theme that sticks in Grisham's craw: maltreatment of young attorneys. t
