Lieutenant Commander Carl V. Smith, USN (ret.) is the author of The Saga of LST 224. The MOAA said of the book, “This is the account of LST 224 from April 2, 1943, the date she was laid down at Seneca, Ill., by the Chicago Bridge & Iron Company to April 9, 1948, when she was sold as scrap to Bethlehem Steel Company. It is the story of her gallant crew who traveled 50,000 miles on her during WWII and participated in six D-day landings in the Pacific Theater: Kwajalein, Eniwetok, Saipan, Tinian, Peleliu, and Iwo Jima. Ten chapters are written by members of the crew.”
