Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0975869930, Hardcover)

This is the adventurous, true story of Sinbad, mascot of the Coast Guard Cutter Campbell during World War II, whose exploits became legend. Although famous to thousands of people in many nations, Sinbad was happiest at sea, treading the decks of the sleek Campbell, where he was treated as just another member of the crew. He slept and ate his chow with the men and even had his own battle station. Battles and hurricanes never dulled his love of standing on the heaving deck with spray breaking over his wiry body. To Coast Guardsmen on the Campbell and all over the world he was real hero. This new edition, the first in 60 years, includes photos of Sinbad and an introduction by Mike Walling, author of Bloodstained Sea, The U.S. Coast Guard in the Battle of the Atlantic 1941-1944.
