9780752464718: Military, Naval and Civil Airships Since 1783: The History and the Development of the Dirigible Airship in Peace and War
From the Publisher:

This book traces the development of the airship, relating the struggles of the early pioneers, from the Montgolfier brothers, and the parallel of the hydrogen balloon. Throughout the nineteenth century, 'Aeronauts' learnt the skill of aerial navigation, making lost distance flights in an unfamiliar element. Attempts were made to control the direction of flight, first by the use of steam, then utilising electrical power, and finally the petrol engine. From 1900, Count Zeppelin developed the rigid airship from a faltering experimental craft into a potent war weapon. Between the wars it appeared that the giant passenger-carrying airships offered the solution to long distance air travel, but this dream proved illusory. In the present age, airships are again being considered for new uses including airborne military command posts and geostationary unmanned 'Aerostats' harvesting the power of the 'Jetsream' to provide an umlimited supply of electrical power for the planet.

About the Author:

DANIEL GEORGE RIDLEY-KITTS MBE worked in the aviation industry (Martin-Baker ejector seat company) and later served in the RAF as a national serviceman in a fighter squadron in Germany. After this, he worked as an architectural/engineering draughtsman and joined the North Sea oil industry in 1963 - as a consequence, he was involved in the development and bringing on stream of several North Sea oil fields. In 1994, Ridley-Kitts was awarded an MBE for the New Year's honour list.
