More About This Title Zeppelin Hindenburg
LZ129 Hindenburg was intended as the first of many German airships built for passenger, freight, and mail service between Europe and North and South America. Although most famous for her fiery crash on May 6, 1937, Hindenburg had completed 62 successful flights before the ship’s hydrogen lifting gas ignited while landing at Lakehurst, New Jersey. Here three world-renowned Hindenburg experts have collaborated to create the definitive photographic history of the zeppelin. Gripping historical research is combined with a vivid selection of rare ephemera, rare photographs, and a fold-out section showcasing the ship's plans.
Dan Grossman has been writing about rigid airships and zeppelins for over 20 years, and he runs the world’s leading airship-related website. He lives in Atlanta. Cheryl Ganz is former Chief Curator of the Smithsonian's National Postal Museum and a leading Hindenburg collector. She lives in Winfield, Ilinois. Patrick Russell served as an historical consultant on numerous Zeppelin-related television documentaries. He lives in Chicago.
