By Paul Chamberlain

Norfolk man Paul Chamberlain is perhaps the UK’s most experienced rescue swimmer. With charity MOAS (Migrant Offshore Aid Station) he’s helped rescue more than 6,000 men, women and children adrift in the Mediterranean Sea.

In 2016 it is estimated that more than 200,000 people made the perilous crossing from North Africa to Europe. Many were fleeing brutally oppressive regimes and almost 5,000 are thought to have drowned. They often spend their life savings getting help to cross first the Sahara, then to set sail to cross the sea to Europe. Abuse is common and many find themselves adrift, having run out of fuel on a dangerously overloaded ship or inflatable. Paul decided to write his story to raise awareness of the true horror of this humanitarian disaster.

The book is scheduled for publication early 2018. You can pre-order your copy, which will be sent to you the moment it is published.
