"Most often described in a combat role, this book portrays the
Zeppelin campaign from the German home front perspective and is
well-recommended for its unique visual and psychological
insights."-- "Over the Front"
"The author's knowledge of the Medieval period in these islands shines through as he or she takes us on a journey through the minefield of opposing factions fighting for the crown of England. Authoritative, educational and extremely entertaining."-- "Books Monthly"
