Storyline

The outbreak of World War I places Scots officer Geoffrey Richter-Douglas in an uncomfortable position. Although his allegiance is to Britain, his mother was from an aristocratic Bavarian family, and he spent his summers in Germany as a child. When Geoffrey is approached by a German spy who offers him a chance to defect, he reports the incident to his superiors, but instead of arresting the spy they suggest that he accept her offer--and become an Allied agent. In Germany, among old friends, Geoffrey discovers that loyalty is more complicated than he expected, especially when he finds himself aboard the maiden voyage of a powerful new prototype Zeppelin, headed for Scotland on a secret mission that could decide the outcome of the war. Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

The ship carried out 74 reconnaissance missions in the North Sea, four air-raids on England dropping 5683kg of bombs, and several attacks on British submarines. It caught fire and was destroyed in its shed at Fuhlsbuttel on 16 September 1916 together with L6. See more »
