Merriam Press World War 2 Memoir Series. The S.S. Smith Thompson was a World War II armed cargo ship built on an emergency basis by the U.S. War Shipping Administration. The Smith Thompson was one of... More > those “ordinary” Liberty ships that did her job during extraordinary times. This book chronicles one man’s version of a typical voyage aboard a WWII Liberty ship. The man at the center of the story is Albert F. Miller. The story is told by Al’s grandson, Steve Miller. Merchant seamen in World War II suffered more deaths per capita than any branch of the U.S. military. In fact, the War Shipping Administration deliberately refused to reveal the casualty figures during the war in order to avoid creating a shortage of volunteers. I hope the reader will come to understand what it was like to serve aboard an armed merchant vessel. They served quietly, without distinction, and felt no particular grandeur; they thought they were “just doing their job.” 22 photos and illustrations.< Less
