This is a perfect blend of historical retelling and technical detail that shows the airship's place in the evolution of flight. The story-like text presents airships within the context of world events, helping readers understand the influence one had on the other, and how these influences may have contributed to the Hindenburg's demise. Compelling and instructive reading.
Publisher Summary
At 800-feet long, the Hindenburg was the largest airship ever built--just slightly smaller than the Titanic! Also of a disastrous end, the zeppelin burst into flame as spectators watched it attempt to land in Lakehurst, New Jersey on May 6, 1937. In under a minute, the Hindenburg was gone, people jumping from windows to escape. However, only 62 of the 97 crew members and passengers onboard survived. The exact cause of the disaster is still unknown and remains a fascinating historical mystery perfect for this series.
