Some Say That The Little Boats Built In New Orleans Won The Great War

"'Andrew Higgins..'..Eisenhower said..'..is the man who won the war for us.'  My face must have shown the astonishment I felt at hearing such a strong statement from such a source. Eisenhower went on to explain, 'If Higgins had not designed and built those LCVPs, we never could have landed over an open beach.  The whole strategy of the war would have been different."'
