Abstract:

"Zeppelins of World War I details the German Naval Airship Division's (Luftschiffe) history, the psychological horrors of its bombing attacks on London, and the zeppelin's ultimate failure to remain a wartime vehicle or peacetime transport. With riveting first-person accounts and archival photographs, Wilbur Cross depicts the aerial battles between brave German airmen and British fighter pilots. Action from both sides of the war is presented including the determined efforts of Lieutenant William Leefe Robinson of the Royal Flying Corps, the first pilot to shoot down a zeppelin; the launching and aftermath of the greatest airship raid in history; and the spectacular death of Zeppelin L-48 (including the miraculous survival of the young German officer) that foreshadowed the ultimate demise of the Luftschiffe and Strasser's own violent death."--Jacket.
