Edited by Joe Grant and Jim Gerber Welcome to the May meeting of the WW II Roundtable. The 1993-94 season has been great but all good things must come to an end. Fortunately we have a great line-up for the 1994-95 season. Our program this evening is on landing craft. We will learn about landing craft and tactics, many of which were used at the landings on Normandy 50 years ago. Two of the speakers have personal knowledge of amphibious landings and while their landings were made in the Pacific, their experiences certainly were similar to those during the landings on Fortress Europe.
As you are probably well-aware, next month marks the 50th anniversary of D-Day, the landings at Normandy on the northern coast of France. There will be numerous commemorations and programs on TV remembering this moment in history. Many new books have been published or will be published concerning this topic. Some are available now and some will be released on June 6th, 1994. The following are some of the better books available:
