- The first Zeppelin attack on London came in May 1915 and with it came the birth of a new arena of warfare, the home front. German airships attempted to raid London on 26 separate occasions between May 1915 and October 1917. This book tells the story of Germanys strategic Zeppelin offensive against Britain, and how it came to be neutralized.
