A Coast Guardman's History of the U.S. Coast Guard Hardback


More a book about Coast Guard heritage than an academic history, this book focuses on a variety of relatively unknown Guardsmen who personify the service's core values.

The author highlights contributions of a variety of individuals, from seamen to admirals on active duty, as well as reservists, auxiliarists, and civilian members of Team Coast Guard.

These heroes, representing a great diversity in age, sex, race, and ethnicity, set an example worthy of emulation and serve as role models for today's Coast Guard men and women. About the AuthorC. Douglas Kroll, a former Coast Guard officer with a Ph.D. in history, teaches at the College of the Desert, in Palm Desert, CA.

This is his third book.
