Hell bent for the Normandy beaches a massive flotilla of naval vessels are involved in one of the most harrowing and dramatic episodes of World War II - Operation Neptune, code name for 'D' Day.

The vital contribution by landing craft to the success of the operation is enormous - LCF49 is just one of these, a small vessel whose crew know only too well that death could be just round the corner ...

There's SBA Peach, whose reaction to the demon drink has something to be desired - Lt. Turk, down-to-earth C.O. - Perkins and Walters, two hard-boiled sailors with a cynical eye - and Signalman 'Lobby' Ludd, whose main problem is his stormy relationship with a certain Freda Harris from Walham Green ...

Will they be able survive one of the most ambitious naval landings ever?

Or will Operation Neptune be their last mission?

The Neptune Landing detailing the tragedies and triumphs of 'D' Day is the dramatic sequel to The Tinfish Run and The Pierhead Jump.
