"In this book, the complete story of the Zeppelin offensive, from Admiral Hugo von Pohl's successful campaign to persuade the Kaiser to initiate the raids, to the destruction of L53, the last Zeppelin to be brought down in combat, is chronicled in minute detail. The author has spent over ten years in personal research, which has extended to many interviews and much correspondence with surviving servicemen and close relatives of the leading personalities of the time, both British and German. Over 300 illustrations, most taken from private collections and not previously published, plus a large number of first-hand accounts, give a vivid insight into the drama of the times, and extensive appendices providing details of the men and machines involved complete a fascinating story that never before has been told with such thoroughness." - dust jacket.
