Images of War, The RAF Air Sea Rescue Service in the Second World War, rare photographs from wartime archives

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The Images of War series is always a visual delight, displaying 
some of the rarest images available, many seen for the first

very high visual standard and covers a subject that has received 
very little coverage in print before. Strongly Recommended.
