The Best and Most Definitive Book on Coast Guard History Ever Written!

This is one of those really fun books to read and to look at. I got the book and spent an afternoon looking it over and explaining all the photos and pictures to my six-year old grandson. He totally enjoyed it along with me. The book has a simple and humble enough title “The Coast Guard.” What a delightful surprise awaits inside. First off, the book cover looks like a book you would want to have on your coffee table in your professional office lobby where others could see your good taste and entertain themselves while waiting for you. Tom Beard has put together the ultimate book on what the Coast Guard is all about.

The author, along with a large staff of others, have put together some of the all time most interesting photos and stories about this branch of service. I even noticed that my part of northern California was covered with some USCG history dealing with the great Yuba City floods of 1955. The book is an absolute “must have book” for anyone who has ever had any member of his or her family in the USCG. I was in the Army and yet, I spent a full afternoon just looking through the book and the next day reading the stories. It will entertain you even if you are not someone who reads military books.

The book relates the history of the lighthouses, the rescue boats, the ice cutters, the service in different wars, the battle against drug dealers and all kinds of air and sea rescues. It is a full history from the beginnings of the service to the present day under the Office of Homeland Security.

This book is the best book ever written about the USCG.  Everything you could ever care to know is in there. It is a collector’s book for sure!
