Read book description and reviews bellow

Of all the airships that Germany ever built, few gained the recognition and fame as did the LZ-127 "Graf Zeppelin. No other airship made more flights, transported more passengers, carried more mail and covered a greater distance, than did the Graf Zeppelin". Its unique design, steadfast airworthiness, and indisputable safety record underscored the Commander's belief in Lighter-than-Air (LTA), as the safest means of trans-Atlantic passenger service. The Graf Zeppelin" would cross the Atlantic 140 times and its commanders and crew were given the thrill and honor of two New York City ticker-tape parades, a feat that has never been repeated. Passengers were offered fine food and spacious accommodations as the airship flew at an altitude of normally only 300 meters, over the North Pole, Egypt or even Around the World. It was the most successful Zeppelin that ever flew.
