The air-sea rescue service of the Luftwaffe in World War II

This is the complete story of German air/sea rescue operations during the Second World War. It covers the organisation, methods and changes made during the war and gives many details of operations carried out in waters over which the Luftwaffe passed on operations.

Not all of the story is pleasant, and anti-air/sea aircraft operations by the Allies are covered in some detail.

Albeit a non-aggressive task, this history makes good reading and is well worth buying, as it gives a greater dimension to German air operations than has been available before.
