Alex de Quesada reveals the full history of the US Coast Guard throughout World War II in this Elite title.

In particular, the book draws attention to the little-known story of how the US Coast Guard ran a number of the landing craft throughout D-Day in 1944 as well as providing crucial anti-U-boat patrols throughout the war years. A number of Coast Guard servicemen were lost in these two campaigns, and their undeniable contribution to the US war effort deserves greater recognition. The Coast Guard also provided aviators and gunners to the Merchant Marine and manned Port Security Services.

These roles are all fully explained and illustrated with rare photographs and specially commissioned artwork.
