Cradle of Invasion - A History of the U.S. Naval Amphibious Trai
[506810]
$4.95

by Merle T. Cole 37 pages, B/W photos A very significant event in the regionís maritime history was the establishment at Solomons by the U.S. Navy of the nationís first amphibious training base. It was here in Solomons, Maryland that the U.S. Marine Corps trained some of its troops that later landed on the Solomon Islands in the Pacific; it was here, also, that the U.S. Army gained the experience necessary for the successful landings on Normandy Beach in France. This publication relates the history of this important but little-known base from which so much history was made.
