Zeppelin attack routes

I was perusing some of the many fantastic tomes at the library this week and found a great German account of WW1 Zeppelin raids on Britain which included this chart of 'standard routes'.  Should a set of such plans fall into British agents' hands, an aeronef ambush could be set to pounce on the would be attacks.  All the makings of a neat scenario!


Just some for the great books available - frustratingly, I don't have time to absorb them all!

Fascinating! I lived near Great Yarmouth, which was the target for one of the earliest Zeppelin attacks, and worked near St. Peters Plain in the town where one of the most destructive bombs fell. A good table of the events of the raid can be found here...
