Concise but well written thoroughly engaging book
on 14 September 2014
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.
