The book is packed with facts, but the writing style is disjointed. It's structured like a thousand separate paragraphs in chronological order; they don't flow at all. I read the first 50 pages and quit.

I found it very fascinating to read the history of the service in which I served. I realized again the true value of the service.

Good book

While "The United States Coast Guard: 1790 to the Present" provides an excellent overview of this military service's 215 year history, it is sometimes a bit hard to follow and is not a stellar piece of literature. At many points throughout the book the author seems to focus more on providing a general historical background than he does on the history of the Coast Guard. Overall, a decent quick read about this service's history but far from the best book that I have ever read.

Based on other reviews for this book, I was looking forward to reading a concise and informative survey of USCG history. While well researched, this book is fragmented, disjointed and barely readable. The style is reminicent of a bad high school paper, of which I've read many, and hardly reflective of Mr. Ostrom's experience as a well respected college level teacher. The book is best used as a reference rather than a readable narrative.

This book is THE reference for anyone needing facts on the USCG. A must for libraries.
