Zeppelins Over the North East
0- 9927324- 5- 5
This book tells the story of the Zeppelin airship raids on the North East of England during WW1 and of the air defences which were introduced to counter this threat. From the first raid on 14th April 1915 to the last 13th March 1918, each one is covered.
Initially the air defences were totally unprepared, but the RFC gradually developed its methods which forced the Zeppelins to fly ever higher. On the 27th November 1916, a Zeppelin was destroyed over Hartlepool.
The book has 40 pages, including 18 images and is priced at £4.50. Post and packing is free in the UK.
