SynopsisThe Zeppelin: a dinosaur of the clouds, a mighty German airship that threatened to crush the British. In March 1917 one of these giants loses its way and drifts helplessly out of control over Hertfordshire. A hair- raising campaign of dogged courage and intrepid airmanship ensues.

Courage is pitted against time as the fuel gauge veers dangerously towards zero . . .
