KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the story of one of the most dramatic and daring areas of rescue, rescue from the air. In discussing the activities of the American Air Rescue Service and the British Search and Rescue Organization, the author recreates moments of intense drama:- the rescue of a downed airman under enemy fire in Korea, rescue from a shipwreck by helicopter, rescue in the desert, and at the poles, rescue by parachute. Here is actual adventure vividly stated and supplemented with a substantial amount of explanatory information. Of immediate interest to air-minded readers or to boys who contemplate working with the rangers or other such organizations.
