Dramatic First-hand Accounts of Lifeboat Rescues Around the British Isles. Maps to the endpapers. Illustrated with colour and B&W photographs. From the cover: “Drawing on scores of interviews, Ray and Susannah Kipling use first-hand accounts to produce a gripping mix of stories from both the lifeboat crews and those they have rescued. Some are feats of heroism, others grim tragedies. Some are funny, some bizarre, but almost all — such as the comments above — are memorable for the extraordinary modesty and coolness expressed by the crews battling in one of the world’s most hostile environments.”
