Description

Longshore Soldiers chronicles the wartime experiences of port battalion veterans, part of the US Army's Transportation Corps, responsible for ensuring military were delivered to the front line. The author, Andrew Brozyna, traces the stories of the veterans from training in the US, to supplying the beaches of Normandy, dock work in Antwerp, supply for the British at El Alamein and finally to deactivation. Longshore Soldiers offers a compelling narrative, packed with first-hand accounts and personal histories, of an overlooked aspect of the Second World War. The author examines the logistics of the European theatre and how these veterans kept the Allied armies moving as they marched into the Reich.
