Summary
"Andrew Jackson Higgins is perhaps the most forgotten hero of the Allied victory. He designed the LCVP and the first effective tank landing craft, and his shipyard produced more than 20,000 boats for Allied forces. Jerry Strahan's biography of Higgins reveals a colorful, controversial character--hard-fisted, hard-swearing, and hard-drinking--who was an outsider to New Orleans' elite social circles. He was also, however, a hardworking boatbuilder who became a major industrialist with a worldwide reputation--even Hitler was aware of Higgins, calling him "the new Noah."--from publsher's website
