"'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.'"

Stephen E. Ambrose    D-DAY JUNE 6, 1944: THE CLIMACTIC BATTLE OF WORLD WAR II

The Higgins Boat Project is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization using original plans and original material specifications to build an authentic Higgins boat (LCVP) for display at the National D-Day Museum in New Orleans, La.
