Description:
"Leaving the chaos of postwar Germany for an uncertain future, 17-year-old Gerhardt Thamm arrived in America in 1948 with little more than his American birth certificate. With minimal command of English and little formal education, he enlisted in the Army and found himself assigned to operations where his German language abilities were put to use" -- Publisher's description.
