Summary
"This story is about the U.S. Coast Guard's role in World War II, as told from the perspective of a teenage boy who played a part in that great global struggle. It is also about an unheralded boat that played an insignificant and yet very important role in America's response to restoring freedom to a part of the world enslaved by an evil tyranny. The Lucky 13-- my boat-- was a weapon specifically designed and mass produced in the United States to bridge the 6,000-mile ocean gap and carry the war to the shores of the enemy. The "Higgins" boats were lowered from troop ships with one mission : to carry the infantry and equipment the last seven miles of the long and perilous journey onto the beaches of enemy-held islands"--Preface
