Product Description

The story of the Coast Guard is one of proud service in peace and at war. Featured on this DVD are six rare films rescued from government archives, dating as far back as 1935. They show some of the greatest moments in the history of the 'First Fleet' in the 20th Century.

See the men of the Coast Guard as they keep the sea lanes safe, alerting merchant vessels to the presence of icebergs in the North Atlantic in "International Ice Patrol". Go with a cutter crew on the "Alaska Patrol" and see our nation's 50th State in full color circa 1950! Feel your pulse rise as the USCG cutter at Ocean Station November races to rescue the passengers and crew of a Pan Am Clipper forced to ditch in the Pacific.

See cadets train for sea duty, and go with them aboard the training vessel Eagle.

Finally, in "Coast Guard on Foreign Shores", see how the USCG helped change the course of WWII, fighting Hitler s U-boats, laying mines, and delivering hundreds of thousands of men and tons of equipment to battlefields from North Africa to Normandy to Iwo Jima.

This is the ultimate gift for anyone who ever served in the Coast Guard!

DVD runs 120 minutes, and contains films in black and white and full color. Because these are historic films, image and sound quality may vary. All films have been digitally transferred and remastered for this DVD.

Review

During the period from 1942 to 1945 the Coast Guard landed tens of thousands of Allied soldiers and Marines on enemy beaches in daring amphibious operations. Here's a compilation of ten great seaborne operations from World War 2. --International Historic Films

Being in the Navy, I can relate to the deployments and performing missions. This DVD would give anyone a snapshot on the history of the Coast Guard.

I knew this wasn't a modern video. I purchased this for my grandson. He is very interested in ships and the Coast Guard.

Fred Plasma continues with his carefully crafted and subtle historical take on the military, the coast guard and the American way. In this niche, he is the undisputed master of the medium. Hats off to him and his production team. Let's hope they keep it up with future works of art. Now if only he'd release the next in Blu Ray!
