From Library Journal:

The illustrious "Putnam Aviation" series reaches back to one of the most fascinating eras of flight for a notably thorough volume on the airships that went to war in 1914-18 and then carried passengers across the Atlantic until 1937 and the fiery death of the Hindenberg at Lakehurst, New Jersey. Author Brooks's coverage of those monsters (many were 700 feet long) follows the Putnam mold, with copious technical data, 280 black-and-white photos and other illustrations, and matter-of-fact histories that reveal the occasional aeronautical tidbit (e.g., the first craft to make a round trip of the Atlantic was a British airship, the Armstrong-Whitworth R34, in 1919). The volume offers excellent coverage for this neglected aeronautical subject. A recommended work for the avid aviation reader and better collections that is worth the price.
