"Until recently, almost nothing has been written about the United States Coast Guard. Catching the color and drama of the Service in a series of magnificent episodes, the author presents the whole story of the Coast Guard as the epic of unselfish service and heroism that it is."
The story of men battling against the sea in moments of disaster, this book of United States Coast Guard rescue tales catches the intense excitement of the moments when the men of the Guard go out to match their skill and courage against the power of the sea.
