Heroes of British Lifeboats

Add to cart
Shairer and Jameson: 1938 Harrap London, hardcover with dustjacket 276 pages, 16 photo's. The idea of this book was to persuade lifeboatmen to tell their own stories of their most exciting rescues in recent years. The authors therefore travelled all round the British coast, meeting lifeboatmen and talking to them about their work. The result is a really dramatic volume, in which not only do the authors tell exactly how they secured their material but the lifeboatmen themselves speak to us. Book in good condition. Dustjacket small pieces missing.
