Rafting and Bridging (MTP 74)

River crossings are always a problem for ground forces - and particularly after D-Day when there were many rivers to cross. The initial stage of a river crossing involves an infantry assault to open a bridgehead on the far bank, and this pamphlet deals with the tactics and equipment required to effect this. It covers the standard and improvised methods as well as watermanship. Amply illustrated with line drawings and photographs.
