THE improved and much enlarged six-engined ‘R’ class Zeppelins introduced in the Summer of 1916 form the subjects of our eagerly-awaited second Zeppelin volume. All 17 built and operated during WWI are exclusively covered in great detail - from L30 to LZ113, the fascinating, often tragic, careers of these enigmatic giant bombers make for enthralling reading: L33 forced down at Little Wigborough, her crew taken prisoner by a village Bobby; L35’s experimental wire-guided flying torpedo trials; the accidental losses of L36 and L38; dramatic first-hand account of the infamous October 1917 ‘Silent Raid’ by L45’s rudderman; and the Eastern Front exploits of LZ113 and LZ120, last of the Army Zeppelins - all feature in this lavishly-illustrated book. Over 124 archive photos, many published for the first time; more than 30 colour close-up photos of extant gondolas; five totally unique centre-spread colour profiles; detailed fold-out 1:350 scale plans; 1:96 scale multi-view gondola drawings; extended technical description of L33, colours; markings; design variations; L33 crew interrogations; detailed appendices and more!
Written and illustrated by Ray Rimell, 1000 copies of this highly original, limited edition, soft cover Special are individually signed and numbered by the author, continuing the classic series of airship monographs from Albatros Productions, Ltd.
