Around the coasts of Britain, lifeboats serve and protect. The most famous of all the lifeboat types is the Oakley. Developed in the 1950s, the Oakley motor lifeboats have been responsible for the rescue of thousands of people from ships in distress. Only 44 were built but they were located at almost all of the UK's lifeboat stations and they lasted in service for up to thirty years. Each lifeboat is listed and a detailed history of each is provided. The book is profusely illustrated with over 120 images of the lifeboats.
