Night of the Zeppelin

Night of the Zeppelin

This intriguing little book, 112 pages, details a Zeppelin raid on the town of Loughborough in 1916, an attack that took the lives of ten local people and caused widespread damage and destruction. Against the scale of death and carnage wrought during air raids in the following war this was, by comparaison, only a small affair. And yet, for its time and for this, otherwise unremarkable country town, the raid had a dramatic and profound effect on its inhabitants. Privately published, this is all the same a worthwhile publication for those interested in the history of Zeppelin raids against Britain and contains illustrations, an appendix and bibliography.
