Item Description

The Extraordinary Story Of The U.S. Coast Guard

Since its inception more than 200 years ago, the United States Coast Guard has rescued over 1.1 million people. Yet, despite having more than fifty thousand active and reserve members, most of us know very little about this often neglected but crucial branch of the U.S. military.

Filled with altruism and adrenaline, Rescue Warriors brings us into the daily lives of “Coasties” as well as dozens of death-defying rescues at sea and on hurricane-ravaged shores. A masterpiece of adventure reporting, Rescue Warriors is the definitive book on America’s Coast Guard.
