Respekt : 150 Jahre Deutsche Gesellschaft Zur Rettung Schiffbruchiger Hardback


When ships seek safety in port, lifeboats head out to sea, no matter the weather conditions.

The German Maritime Search and Rescue Service, the Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Rettung Schiffbr chiger (DGzRS), founded 1865, is probably the world's best equipped non-governmental rescue organization with a correspondingly trained and motivated personnel force dedicated to saving life and rendering assistance at sea.

In May 2015 the society celebrates its 150th anniversary.

RESPEKT is an homage to the lifeboat service and people securing the German North Sea and Baltic coasts.

Lively English-German essays and picture captions give deep insight into the world of sea rescue.

The book introduces the reader to lifeboat history, astonishing lifeboat technology and noble men and woman whose priorities are to aid people in peril at sea.
