That's the way it was ...

On this 61st anniversary of the D-Day invasion, I'm reminded of Brolly's excellent series that he authored last year entitled "That's the way it was." (Brolly is also the author of the "Ship's History" page.) It was published on the website in monthly installments beginning with December 1943 and ending in June 1944. It was meant to supplement the ship's history as a snapshot of this particular period of time. Click here to check it out for the first time or to enjoy reading it again. Hint: since it was in monthly installments, they begin at the bottom of the page and work their way up.

The definitive wartime history of LST 325 is to be found in his book "Mosier's Raiders," available in the Ship's Store or via his website by clicking on the title.

Speaking of our talented people, Linda Alvers' "The Return of LST 325" will be rebroadcast on The History Channel Thursday, June 9. Check your local listings for times. This outstanding production is also available in the Ship's Store.
