Description: The many illustrations in colour, showing lifeboats and rescue cruisers from all over the world, vividly express man's ever increasing efforts to find the perfect craft. The details of the history of sea rescue in many countries leave no doubt of the general concern for the safety of those at sea.
As a lifeboatman who has experienced the dangers, difficulties and occasionally the frustrations of rescue work but also the joy of successful saving of lives, I am impressed with the way this book makes clear the unity of purpose and brotherhood of lifeboatmen the world over.
The chapter on lifeboat disasters makes sad but impressive reading and cannot but bring home the fact that however good the boat, it is on the men who man her that the distressed mariner must rely.
Commander Middleton was the inspector of lifeboats for the area when I first became coxswain and I know that he is well equipped to write on the wider aspects of sea rescue.
