The record of then fifty-one German airship and fifty-two aircraft bombing raids on England during the Great War in which 280 tons of bombs were dropped. Casualties amounted to 1,413 killed, and 3,408 wounded. This account is the first complete record of the raids, which also explains the origins and development of the German air bombing campaign over Britain, and how it was countered. Contemporary photos supplement the text in which German, as well as British, experiences are described. The author had access to official records, in particular a series of Air Raid reports prepared as they occurred by the War Office. An extremely unusual and valuable book.
