This work, written ten years after the end of the First World War by the baron Horst von Buttler, captain of one of the Zepplins of the German imperial marine, tells the extraordinary story of the aerial operations on behalf of the Zeppelins above the ally territories. The book presents the memories of war, especially during the missions and nocturnal bombardments in England. For the first time after the invasion by Guillame le Conquérant, Enland, that had never felt so menaced, is bombarded in its heart, London. Even if the quantity of bombs launched on the British is minimal, this menace will forever remain engraved in the memory of the British until the Blitz of the Second World War. This book also presents the technical evolution of the Zeppelins, an ultra-modern combat machine of the time equipped with transmission and respiratory machines. Written by Horst Treusch von Buttlar-Bradenfels, introduction by Hervé Bernard.
