From the back cover: "Many little-known facts have emerged in the ever-constant study of World War II and in the role America played to bring about victory for the Allies. ~ The U. S. Coast Guard Beach Patrol, made up of boys and men from 17 to 73, protected the continental borders of America from enemy invasion after June 1942. There is a twist to the story that makes it an unusual tale. Faced with thousands and thousands of miles of coastline; horses and dogs were put into action in many areas. For those in the mounted patrol, they were "sailors on horseback", a strange connotation for seagoing patriots, and just as unusual were seamen walking dogs. Only those in the picket patrol boats fit the description of a mariner, but success came on land and sea to man and beast alike in the pursuit of protecting America's coastline. "
