Operation Torch and USS Texas

From The History Guy.

At the outset of World War II, the United States had not developed a doctrine for amphibious operations. The development of that doctrine would be some of the most important lessons of the early war, contributing to future successes. USS Texas would be at the center of that process. It is history that deserves to be remembered.
