Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Before the Hindenburg spectacularly caught fire and crashed in 1937, and while the airship Graf Zeppelin was making successful transatlantic flights in the 1930s, it was far from clear that heavier-than-air flight would prove the more effective aviation technology. This book traces the history of the airship from the invention of the hot air balloon to the heyday of the Zeppelin, then charts its rapid decline after the war and the recent resurgence of interest in lighter than air flight.
