Here's an exciting book from Osprey.
In Shot Down and in the Drink, author Graham Pitchfork relates downed airmen's stories of courage and resourcefulness while 'in the drink' and those in the RAF Air Sea Rescue Service who saved them.
Following a concise forward, abbreviations and author's note, Pitchfork recounts riveting stories of persistence amidst various terrifying dangers through personal accounts, official documents and photographs.
A bibliography, author's acknowledgments, picture acknowledgments and an index complete the author's narrative.
Forty historical photographs complement the text.
Read it along with Pitchfork's Shot Down and in the Drink. – also from Osprey.
My sincere thanks to Osprey Publishing for this review sample!
