This really was an unexpected delight and is a well written book about a fascinating subject. The book is very balanced and the writer displays a real sense of empathy for both the German airship crews and those who had to shoot them down. A short book, it is one of those books that leaves you wanting much more as it really did engage with me and draw me into the subject. Although the book focuses on the L48, a so called height climber Zeppelin, it includes a concise yet full summary of the German airship campaign against England and a basic history of the Zeppelin. The book is human centred and it is quite uplifting that at the end the three survivors were treated humanely and the graves of the dead were treated with respect. Very highly recommended.

A very interesting and thorough account of the exploits of one German zeppelin over the skies of England during the First World War.. The book has been particularly interesting to me as I was brought up during the inter-war year in a Suffolk village only a few miles from Theberton. I remember being taken to Theberton churchyard when I was a little boy to see the graves of the German airmen who had died when the zeppelin crashed. I believe that the remains of those airmen have now been "repatriated" ti a military cemetery in Germany

Not just the story of L48, but an overview of Zeppelin operations and indeed of airship design and operation generally. Filled some gaps in my knowledge - especially how inaccurate their bombing was, and how difficult it was to navigate these beasts. Not to mention the very high loss rates. It does seem however that the crews were not overly concerned about civilian casualties, and paved the way for the indiscriminate bombing by the Gothas that followed. For a Kindle the photos and diagrams were quite good, but if I'd bought the hard-back I would have appreciated more detailed drawings of the command gondola, machine gun positions and locations, and engines. There was no mention of the one-man observation capsule that I've read about, which could be lowered from the ship through the clouds below to get a navigational "fix". Maybe it wasn't used operationally?

Couldnt put it down, it was well written and when I thought I was well read up on 'recent' history opened up info I was totally oblivious to. Went into detail about crews and the run up to the war in relation to the development of the airships.
The sort of book you would want never to end...good read all around.

A very interesting read, I was not aware of the amount of damage they had caused on the East coast. It was an eye opener to read of the actual costs of the air ships and the heavy loss of life manning them. VERY informative reading.

This was a very good account of the First World War Zeppelin bombing raids and how vulnerable they were. It also provides a fascinating account of the problems faced in trying to make them an effective weapon of war.

This book popped up as a recommendation when I was looking at other WW1 books. As I work in Suffolk and am interested in military history, I thought it would be interesting and so it was. It is easy to read, although rather short, and tells the story well. I shall have to make a visit to the crash site, local church and Leiston Long Shop to see the remains.
