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. While a small and ill-equipped British force tries to shoot down the Zeppelin, its crew are desperately al odds with each other: how can they save the aircraft or, at the least, their skins. Courage is pitted against time as the fuel gauge veers dangerously towards zero . . .
