A history of Coast Guard aviation from its origins down to the eve of the Second World War.
Workman (Capt., USCG, Ret) firmly places Coast Guard aviation within the framework of naval aviation. Because of this, he includes extensive coverage of Navy and Marine Corps aviation in the period as well, which makes for some useful comparisons between the reasons for the differences and similarities among the three sea services in aviation. Workman’s account jumps about a bit, as various topics overlap.
