Description

The RAF's Air Sea Rescue Service saved thousands of RAF, Commonwealth and Allied airmen between 1939 and
1945. This fascinating account draws on first-hand interviews, photographs and official documents to reveal
some of its most dramatic missions in northwest Europe, the Mediterranean and the Far East. Those shot down at sea faced terrifying dangers, from weather extremes to enemy fighters, and rescue by airborne or seaborne craft was
fraught with difficulty. These incredible stories celebrate the courage, persistence and ingenuity of the men who found
themselves 'in the drink' and those who saved them.
