Description

The latest instalment in the successful 'Story' series, The Zeppelin Story charts the history of these incredible airships from their conception to their fiery destruction. In the 1930s the Zeppelins ruled the skies, crossing the Atlantic with a style and elegance never seen before - or since - in air travel. The brainchild of the elderly Count Zeppelin, the airships were reinvented from the aerial bombers of the First World War as the only way for the rich and famous to travel, and with the embryonic aircraft of the time barely able to hop the Atlantic, the Zeppelins were set to dominate air travel. At least, that was until the obliteration of the Hindenburg at Lakehurt, New Jersey. Author John Christopher is a life-long aviation enthusiast and a professional balloon pilot. He is director of Airship Initiatives, a consultancy which aims to put modern airships to work. He has previously written Balloons at War and Brunel's Kingdom for The History Press.show more
