This book is an all-inclusive report on a subject in WWI that is considered by many just a curiosity: the combat record of German airships or Zeppelins. The bombing of England by airships triggered a sequence of events that led directly to WWII. The unbelievably inaccuracy in navigation and aiming with the primitive systems of WWI caused an apparently undiscriminated bombing of civilian houses and buildings, with loss of property and human lives, children included, contributing heavily to the formation of the stereotyped picture of the "bloodthirsty Huns" attached to Germans. This was one of the causes of the hatred for Germany and Germans (whose echoes are evident even today) that influenced the hard sanctions imposed to Germany with the Versailles Peace Treaty, in turn causing the crisis of post-WWI Germany, the collapse of the Weimar Republic, the Birth of the Nazi Party and the tragedies that followed.
The actions of the airships bring a tribute to the bravery of their airmen: to fly an airship was already Dangerous in peaceful times, to fly it over an enemy country with no assistance from the ground and the air defences trying to shoot you down at any cost was extremely Dangerous, and in the last years of WWI, practically suicidal. Notwithstanding this, volunteers from the German NAvy and Army never lacked and they kept pressing their bombing raids even when they were sure of never coming back.
The book is stuffed with pictures and blueprints of the period. It does not address technical (engineering) matters about airships if not incidentally, it is a narration of the combat activities of the German airships in WWI.
A thorough and informative history of the first real strategic air campaign in history by the zeppelins of the German Navy against Great Britain during the First World War. Long before B-52 attacks against North Vietnam in the 1960s and 1970s and raids by thousands of USAAF and RAF heavy bombers against Germany and the B-29 attacks against Japan, attacks by individual lighter than air rigid airships almost accomplish what later never could; terrorizing the civilian population of a powerful country such as Great Britain to the point of hysteria.

Fortunately for Britain, which was totally unprepared against the attacks by the airship that could fly well above the range of its guns and sircraft, the German Navy suffered serious losses to the worst enemies of all air forces; weather and 'pilot error.'

If you have any interest whatsoever in airships, World War I aviation or the development of strategic bombing; this book is a 'must read.'
Always interested in Airships and I enjoyed the book
Lots of photos and information.
Absolutely great collectors book, includes amazing set of historical documents: flight logs, orders, some schematics, many rare photographs, and in depth exploration of the subject. Should be very valuable source for anyone interested in the usage of German airships during the Great War.
Wonderful book, beautifully bound, filled with details and lavishly illustrated. A great read for war buffs and Zeppelin fans alike.
Very Old Chap
This esoteric work is a gem for the history buff as well as for the airship enthusiast. The photos alone make the book worthy enough to justify the effort of cracking open one's wallet. The information on the airships - or should I say "big slow explosive aerial targets" - and the intrepid units that flew them appears to be well-researched. If only all the world's power-hungry aggressors put so much effort into doomed ideas like the airship, we'd live in a more peaceful, albiet smokier, world.
In the 1996 hit film 'Independance Day' the terrified populance of the worlds major cities cringe as huge ships of an invading force hover overhead. While that movie was simply escapist entertainment, something strikingly similar happened (over London, at least) during World War I; Germany tried to force England into submision using that uniquely German invention, the Zeppelin. 'The Zeppelin in Combat' by Douglas H. Robinson, is regarded as the standard reference on this particular facet of WWI. The book documents the trials, tribulations, and tragedies of the attempt to make the airship into a viable weapon. Covered is the role of the airship in the famous Naval battle of Jutland, an extraordinary attempt to supply troops in Central Africa via airship, and several vivid accounts of British pilots that successfully shot down Zeppelins. Other topics include the story of one crew downed in the north sea, who's eventual fate was revealed by a note washed ashore in a bottle. Another crew became the only hostile forces to march over English soil during either world war when they were forced down during a raid (although not too terribly hostile, they were captured en masse by a lone policeman on a bicycle). Personalities include Hienrich Mathy, the Red Baron of airships, and Peter Stasser, the Naval leader of airships whose almost religious belief in the airship as a weapon of war lead to his own death in an Zeppelin off the coast of England. This revised edition includes many photos published for the first time. For the serious airship enthusiast, this book provides fascinating reading. One caveat, however; the book is published by Shiffer Military History, and contains numerous typo's (as many Shiffer books do). But all in all, they should be applauded for publishing a book at all on such an arcane subject
