DIVERS.  FROM PIPER ALPHA TO THE GULF WAR., May, Jon.

Author Name    May, Jon.

Title   DIVERS. FROM PIPER ALPHA TO THE GULF WAR.

Book Condition   Very Good+

Publisher   London Coronet / Hodder and Stoughton 1996

ISBN Number    0340649062 / 9780340649060

Seller ID   25302

245 pp. B&w drawings. "Jon May is a paramedic who is also trained to control deep sea dive systems attached to the world's oil industry. This is his own true story, starting in the holocaust that was the Piper Alpha disaster and taking him from the North Sea to cleaning up offshore after the Kuwait War, to Bombay, the South China Sea and Vietnam. The work of the men who descend to great depths to difuse mines, check pipelines, and clear underwater disaster areas is described with absorbing documentary realism and a degree of gallows humour. From helping rescue a skipper trapped below deck on a sinking ship to treating a latterday victim of mustard gas, Jon May tells a story that is the stuff of so much fiction, but for knife-edged excitement there is nothing to beat the truth." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very light edge wear.
