"Alex de Quesada provides us with the full history of the Coast Guard throughout World War II ... In particular he draws your attention to the little known history of how the US Coast Guard ran a number of landing craft throughout D-Day in 1944, plus how they provided crucial anti-u-boat patrols during the War." - (November 2010) --www.mataka.org
It s a slender but insightful and rewarding volume, a must on any World War Two bookshelf. --World at War
