Self-published memories of Carl R. Thien. A view of the war from Australia to the Philippines 1942-1945, filled with photographs and maps.
Thien was a photographer and member of I Corps Headquarters Company in Australia, stationed at Rockhampton, Queensland.
Next, assigned to the 201st CIC (Counter Intelligence Corps) on Goodenough Island. Participated in the US Army assault on Hollandia on April 22, 1944, operations on Biak Island during May-June, 1944 and finally the liberation of Lingayen Gulf on Luzon during January 1945.
