KIRKUS REVIEW

A defense and plea for airships (not airplanes). Reviews their history, discusses casualities and costs, the airship's place in commerce and the navy, lessons learned in the World War, helium, etc. Why airships have met disaster, the Hindenburg and sabotage, lack of American enthusiasm to assume leadership in airships, personalities in the airship world. An earnest attempt to present facts and a good bet for men and boys who are engineer and air minded.
