DEFEAT OF THE ZEPPELINS Zeppelin Raids and Anti-Airship Operations 1916-18

Despite their size and relatively slow speed, the Zeppelins were hard to locate and destroy at first. They could fly higher than existing fighters and the early raids benefited from a lack of co-ordination between British services.
