They would weigh new members up, put them through their paces, test them and stretch them to their limits.Kipling soon realised that he could not demand respect- he had to earn it.But once he gained their trust he entered a fascinating world, where split-second decisions could mean the difference between life and death.He witnessed incredible rescues by the lifeboat crew, but also, sadly, the times when victims of the stormy seas were not so lucky.This is his remarkable story of what he witnessed during his time with the RNLI.An inspiring tale courage and fortitude.

- Robert Foster, best-selling author of The Lunar Code.Ray Kipling is also the author of ‘Never Turn Back: The RNLI since the Second World War’ and ‘Strong to Save: Dramatic First-Hand Accounts of Life Boat Rescues Around the British Isles’.Endeavour Press is the UKs leading independent publisher of digital books.
