Historical Description[edit | edit source]
The first strategic air raids against civilian targets took place during World War I, as German Zeppelins appeared in the skies above London and other British cities. Although the raids did not significantly impair England's war effort, they sowed terror in the populace that foreshadowed the large-scale bombing of cities that would follow in later conflicts. Unfortunately for Zeppelin crews, these airships were vulnerable to fire and high winds, and many perished in accidents.
