“Onto Rugged Shores: Voyage of LST534” is the story of the vital role the LST played during the second world war as told through the eyes of the men who served on one special ship known simply as the LST534. The documentary traces its life from Evansville, Indiana where she was built, through the D-Day invasion, and later Okinawa where the 534 was severely damaged by a Japanese kamikaze, days before the war ended. The LST was the backbone of the allied invasion forces carrying men and materials onto the invasion beaches. Without them, attack by sea would have been nearly impossible.
