Other Information:

  40 black and white photographs
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 - most published for the first time - celebrate the courage, persistence and ingenuity of the men who found themselves 'in the drink' and those who saved them.
