Continuing our non-fiction dalliance of late, this week’s giveaway book reads far more like fiction. It’s from Jerry Grayson and documents his time as a search and rescue helicopter pilot with the British Royal Navy.
Don’t believe it sounds like fiction? Listen to this extract:
“The whole world had gone mad. Every helicopter available was coming hurtling out of Culdrose airbase. On the coastguard emergency frequency one after another yacht put out a mayday call asking for immediate assistance …”
Now if that doesn’t get the heart racing, the fact that it’s all true probably will! As the book’s promotion says: “Whether reaching a wounded fighter pilot who has ditched in the sea, saving desperate survivors from a sinking ship, or picking up a grievously ill crewman from the deck of a nuclear-armed submarine that can only surface for five minutes, Jerry Grayson has lived a life of unparalleled excitement and adventure.”
This exciting memoir could be yours by answering this week’s question: What’s the bravest thing YOU have ever done? We have TWO copies to be won.
