Bringing Home the LST 325
 

Filmed and produced by 

Gold Crew member Ron Maranto
 

(Two-volume set - VHS only)
 

(100% of the proceeds from "Bringing Home the LST 325" go toward the ship's restoration and operation.)

This comprehensive video was filmed by Gold Crew member Ron Maranto.  While filmed by an amateur, it was professionally edited, and it is most definitely "the next best thing to being there!"  It documents the entire voyage, beginning during the restoration efforts in Souda Bay (Crete), and ending with shipboard footage of the grand arrival in Mobile, AL, on Jan. 10, 2001.  This is the best and most comprehensive footage of the work of our crewmembers and their experiences for several long months of hard work.  It's also ideal for showing your family and friends what life is like aboard an operating LST.

"Mosier's Raiders: The Story of LST-325"

Written by LST-325's Official Historian
David Bronson

Rated four stars in this Amazon review (excerpted):

"Well-researched through first-hand accounts, ship's logs and a myriad of other documents, this account brings us as close to the reality as the printed word possibly can.

"I can't help but describe this book as a tour de force fully on a par with John Bradley's 'Flags of Our Fathers' (the story of his father's participation in the Iwo Jima flag-raising).

"Since the ship participated in the invasions of Sicily, Salerno and Normandy (where it made dozens of round trips between England and Utah Beach), it not only provides real-life excitement but it is an absolute must-read."

"Invitation to Valhalla"

Written by Mike Whicker

Inspired by a true story, Invitation to Valhalla is an award winning “can’t put it down” 388 page novel about spy intrigue at the WW II Evansville LST shipyard.

Erika Lehmann, who is codenamed Lorelei after the siren of Germanic lore, is the English-speaking daughter of Hitler's old comrade and a member of the Führer's inner circle. She is beautiful, athletic, clever -- the epitome of Aryan womanhood -- and the Nazi's top spy. Sent to America , she'll stop at nothing to accomplish her mission, including masquerading as a Jew.

The year is 1942. At the U.S. Naval LST Shipyard in Evansville , Indiana , a Jewish metallurgist named Joseph Mayer is conducting top-secret experiments for the military. Life could not be better for Joe. He loves his job and he is dating a beautiful, young, Jewish woman...

*as with all the books listed here on the Ship’s Store or sold in the LST gift shop in Evansville, proceeds go to the USS LST Memorial.
