I'm writing a paper for a graduate seminar at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, on the Coast Guard and Prohibition in St. Petersburg. I encountered an article from the New York Times from 1922. The article concerned the Coast Guard's liaison with the Prohibition Bureau, which was trying to field its own waterborne interdiction squad, an effort which failed immediately, resulting in the Coast Guard being handed the duty.

After I read that article, I referred to this book, and when I got to pages 64-65 I got a real feeling of deja vu. The words were familiar -- distinctly familiar. In fact, paragraphs had been copied word-for-word from the New York Times article. I realized that I had wasted the money I spent on this book. The book jacket says the author has a master's degree in history, but this effort is not worthy of that distinction. Though there was a footnote citing the 1922 New York Times article, this is a clear violation of "fair use" in copyright. I was disappointed.

Anyone interested in the subject of the Coast Guard during Prohibition will be better off buying Rum War at Sea or Smugglers of Spirits: Prohibition and the Coast Guard Patrol.

This is a fantastically entertaining book made complete by original research and the humor of the author! I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in military or maritime history, the 1920s or pirates. The book contains some fascinating pictures and it is obvious that the author has some expertise in the subject he has written about. I loved this book and I couldn't put it down!
