    An often mis-quoted book, only available in German - until now. This long-awaited English translation is most welcome. The book gives a telling insight into the Zeppelin War through the eyes and words of an ordinary crewman serving on German navy Zeppelins through WW1. The confidence he shows early in the war in this perceived war-winning weapon, gradually fades as Britain eventually finds a way to fight back against these leviathans of the air. The author, Pitt Klein, sees the losses mount amongst his comrades and the book takes on a bleak tone towards the end. For me, one of the fascinating aspects of the book is trying to match Klein's undated accounts of raids from his perspective high in the sky, with the reports of those on the receiving end on the ground. Congratulations to the translator, Alastair Reid, for making this important account available in the English language for the first time.
