All sorts of strange things were invented during the Second World War - the Airborne Lifeboat was one of the more imaginative answers to the problem of how to rescue airmen who were forced to "ditch" in the North Sea and the Channel. This book is the culmination of more than nine years of research at places as diverse as the Public Record Office, the Royal Airforce Museum, Adastral House, the Imperial War Museum, and the National Newspaper Library, augmented by letters from interested people all over the world, personal interviews with designers, boatbuilders and ex-Servicemen.
