Movie Reviews

A great overview of the history and ships of the Coast Guard
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As with all of the "Great Ships" series this is a great overview of a perticular group of ships. The video presents the history of the coast guard including the USLSS and the Revenue Cutter Service to the present day cutters and boats. I would recommend this title to anyone interested in the Coast guard or military history"
Not Really Great.

"Coast Guard ships are on duty in all sizes; up to 400-foot plus lengths. This DVD refers only to those up to 110 feet. Incomplete inventory of what the USCG actually sails."
