Book Review – The Flatpack Bombers, The Royal Navy and the Zeppelin Menace


Remarkably little has been written about the Royal Navy’s aviation achievements against the avalanche of books on the RFC and the RAF. Many relating to the RAF in WWI attempt to portray the RAF as starting in 1914 by including the RFC history as though it was already part of the RAF. It is therefore always welcome when a well-researched book on the RNAS is published. In this book, the author looks specifically at the RNAS attacks on German Zeppelin bases in the start of strategic bombing.
