Daniel Grossman, expert in airship history and author of the erudite blog Airships: a Hindenburg and Zeppelin History Site, posted regarding a new book on the Hindenburg.

Yes, another book, as I can feel you inwardly groan.

But, have faith in renowned historian and author Michael Burgan as well as our Daniel Grossman.

In his post, Daniel tells the unique nature of this book. It is written for a younger audience though highly accurate—it appears to be an excellent summary brief in other words as well as wonderful reading material for eager young minds who wish to venture away from their smart phones.

Here are Daniel’s words:

“I was pleased to serve as historical consultant for The Hindenburg in Flames. Although designed for young adult readers, the publisher was determined to create a highly accurate work and I am quite proud of the book we produced.”

The book has been ordered so that a review post can be published.

    The thing that always struck me about the Hindenburg disaster is how few people were killed. I am sure many passengers and ground crew were horribly burned, but survived. I have only seen a couple of photos of survivors who appear to have visible burn scars. I don’t know if badly burned survivors managed to avoid being photographed, or there really were not that many who were badly burned. I suspect the former, which makes more sense. If I were disfigured, I know I would do everything I could to keep deformities and scars out of the public eye.
