Amphibious Warfare The Theory and Practice of Amphibious Operations in the 20th Century

by Ian Speller

Amphibious Warfare The Theory and Practice of Amphibious Operations in the 20th Century Synopsis

Landing on a hostile beach is one of the most difficult and ancient forms of warfare. It requires unparalleled levels of planning, organisation, coordination, and cooperation between the services. Amphibious Warfare takes the unique approach of building up the different stages of an amphibious campaign chapter by chapter, from the planning and preparation, to landing on the beach, through to achieving the objective and the final withdrawal. Using case studies from history, ranging from Gallipoli to the Gulf, to illustrate the successes and mistakes of individual campaigns, and accompanied by over 150 black-and-white photographs, maps and battles plans, Amphibious Warfare is the complete and essential guide to the theory and practice of amphibious operations in the 20th century.
