Quoted from the introduction in the book TO FOREIGN SHORES U.S. Amphibious Operations in World War II By John A. Lorelli.
"Everyone interested in World War II history knows American soldiers and marines made many amphibious landings, often against fierce opposition. But most people know little about the men and the craft used to land the troops.The reason amphibious forces have remained comparatively unsung is clear: amphibious warfare is simply not glamorous. Ships that lift assault forces are large and clumsy,lacking the sleek lines of destroyers or the formidable presence of the aircraft carrier. While combat and news photographers were usually present in droves to record landings,far fewer stayed to cover the mundane task of unloading supplies."
As in the book this web page seeks to redress this imbalance.
