The extensive use of publicity material is unique in the field of publishing. The original posters which are shown in the book have been donated by the author to the U.S. Coast Guard Museum which is open daily to the public.

The films discussed include documentaries, short subjects and Hollywood features. Included are films about progenitors of the service such as the Revenue Cutter Service, the US Lifesaving Service, the US Lighthouse Service, and the US Steamboat Inspectors.

Also found are films showing the Coast Guard cooperating with other agencies such as the US Public Health Service, the Bureau of Customs, the Narcotics Bureau, and the Weather Bureau. Some of the documentaries involve all of the US Armed Forces. Even Walt Disney's Pluto and James Bond (Agent 007) get into the act.

The critic's comments are most interesting and come from a vast variety of contemporary sources - many of which have long ago ceased publication.

This masterly contribution to popular culture is well researched and fun to read. It captures the Hollywood image of the Coast Guard as presented to the public throughout the Twentieth Century. The story was particularly nostalgic for me because of my father's and uncle's Coast Guard careers as well as my own. I suggest any reader will enjoy and profit from it.
