Dr. Eckener's dream machine : the great zeppelin and the dawn of air travel by Douglas Botting( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In July 1900, Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin conducted the maiden flight of the world's first zeppelin. The trip lasted eighteen minutes and the airship reached a cruising speed of eight miles an hour. Among those watching the historic event was a young reporter named Hugo Eckener, who would go on to play a crucial role in the zeppelin's development, becoming first the Counts aide and later his successor. In 1929, Eckener earned a lasting place in the history of flight with the legendary around-the-world voyage of the luxurious Graf Zeppelin. During World War I, zeppelins carried out the first systematic aerial bombing in the history of war. Though they ultimately failed as a weapon, zeppelins were soon flying all over the world, running the first intercontinental passenger service. By the late 1920s, the zeppelin ruled the skies for air travel, far surpassing even the radically improved airplane in capacity and comfort, and outpacing steamships in speed. This book tells the enthralling story of the creation and development of the zeppelin, one of the great inventions of aviation history and one of the most spectacular and best-loved technological and operational marvels of its age

America's secret army : the untold story of the Counter Intelligence Corps by Ian Sayer( Book )

They were spy catchers for the American military. From Pearl Harbor in 1941 to the Korean Armistice in 1953, these ?G-men in khaki? made up the primary US intelligence organization on foreign soil. It was also the most secret, until the Klaus Barbie affair in 1983 revealed his connection to the American Army Counter Intelligence Cops (CIC). Having gained exclusive access to the CIC archives and interviewed surviving agents worldwide, the authors reveal for the first time the extent of the actions taken by those ?gumshoes with bayonets?. To understand America?s military history, her foreign policy, and the framework within which today?s CIA and FBI operate, one must know all about America?s Secret Army.

Gavin Maxwell : a life by Douglas Botting( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gavin Maxwell was a romantic, self-destructive, aristocratic adventurer who worked as secret agent, shark fisherman, racing driver, poet and travel writer. His books on Iraq, Sicily and Morocco were acclaimed, but his fame as a writer rests on his bestselling story of the otters he lived with in a remote cottage on the west coast of Scotland, Ring of Bright Water. Maxwell's private life was every bit as turbulent. His homosexuality was masked by the love of a number of women, for whom he was a serially unsatisfactory partner. This biography is a magnificent evocation of the man, his time and the places and animals that formed such an important part of it. Never was the simple life of a nature-loving conservationist pursued by so complicated a character."--Back cover
