A fascinating full-length biography of Robinson who became an overnight hero by shooting down the first airship over London on September 2, 1916, paving the way for the eventual defeat of the Zepplin as a strategic bombing weapon. On April 5, 1917, he was shot down over Douai. After landing safely, he was captured, and became a German prisoner of war until the Armistice. Robinson's health deteriorated after his release from capture and he died during the influenza pandemic on December 31, 1918. Among the appendices included are the reports of the London air raid on September 2, 1916. Numerous black and white illustrations.
