Flight to Mons, by Alexander Fullerton is the story of a flight in a small British naval airship from England into enemy held France. The story held my interest for the length of the book, and not just because of the action. Alexander Fullerton is able to generate interest in the technical aspects of lighter than air flight, and brings to life the dangers faced by the crews of these airships. Sometimes making it back to the ground, and safety, by the smallest of margins. Remember, in those days there were no parachutes issued to military air crews

When young Charlie Holt is chosen to take an airship to France in order to bring out a young girl and her mother, the motive for the challenge is intelligence—the girl has befriended a German officer who revealed the Germans' forthcoming military plans. Her information could save the war and millions of lives. It is agreed that in return for her intelligence, she and her invalid mother will be taken to safety. With a marine and air mechanic as accomplices, Holt sets out on his mission, but it all goes wrong when Holt confuses his directions. Out of a sense of honor and guilt, he will have to complete the mission—alone.

Military Lighter-Than-Air (LTA) aviation, especially the early days of LTA aviation, is almost never covered in the fiction world, but this book is a happy exception. These were relatively huge and ungainly beasts that were every bit as loud as a normal airplane, and normally required a sizable ground crew for takeoffs and landing. So how would you use such a thing on a covert mission? That's exactly the problem that the characters face and solve in this book.

It's well worth a read!

Wonderful adventure about Britain's small military airships of World War I. Prolific Fullerton is reknown for his accurate technical detail, and he gives you enough here to put you uncomfortably in the open-air cockpit of a hydrogen-filled blimp hunting submarines at 6,000 feet over the English channel and on into occupied France for a little espionage. Brave men, flying with no parachutes (few available yet) in what amounted to a biplane's fuselage, stripped of its wings, suspended beneath the highly-inflamable (even explosive) gas bag by a series of occasionally unreliable wires. With the primitive forecasting of the day, the weather could be their worst enemy. These machines exist only in photos today, and not many of those. But quite a lot of historical material is on the Web about the little and big airships, which were improved from about 1913 until the 1930s when airplanes had advanced enough to make the blimps fairly impractical, due to their dangerous hydrogen gas. Think of the Hindenberg disaster, and others less well known.
