A list of all Amphibious Assault Operations in WWII


Recommended Posts

As we recognize the 74th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy, lets take this opportunity to also recognize the other amphibious assault operations during WWII that in some cases have mostly been overshadowed by the longest day on June 6, 1944. This is a list that I found online. According to the source, the list below also includes operations that were planned but eventually canceled. Please add any operations that are not represented here and please make a note if there are any errors. Thank you.

It should be noted that these are primarily the larger US amphibious operations (some combined with Allied forces). For example, although Cartwheel and Chronicle are on the list, the many Australian landings in New Guinea (Liliput, Postern), New Britain, Borneo (Oboe), etc are not included

 

Some of the other smaller USMC, USA operations are also not on the list.(Michaelmas, Backhander, Appease)

There were also landings conducted in late march west of okinawa to secure the April 1 landings. Kerama Retto i believe. Got a named navy M1 helmet to an ensign that was the boat officer of a landing craft there.

Looking for the following:

452nd and 447th Bomb Group items

Anything 12th Armored- especially uniforms

155th Assault Helicopter Company, Camp Coryell, or Ban Me Thuot Vietnam items[/center]

Good morning guys, sorry if I'm incorrect in asking but is there a way to know which guys were in which LVT for Operation Galvanic? I know my uncle was in one at H hour & was marooned on the reef & had to wade in, he was PFC John K Mohrlang KIA(no body recovered). I appreciate any help or guidance from your expert hands!
