The one and only military airship book is complete!
In World War I, the world's first modern all-out war, the German military operated many huge airships as weapons.
Their uses were diverse, including strategic bombing, anti-ship and ground attack, patrol and reconnaissance, and transportation.
This book is the only introduction to "airships as weapons" in Japan dedicated to this subject, providing a detailed explanation of airship mechanisms, tactics, organization, major battles and their consequences, prominent military figures, and their influence on later military and aviation, with many color illustrations and photographs from the period.
