A Glint in the Sky


This compelling account of the German air raid on Folkestone and the appalling aftermath is the first comprehensive history of the episode to be published. The book gives a dramatic description of the raid in which nearly 100 people perished, relying heavily on the eyewitness testimony from the townspeople who were there on that fateful day. It records the experiences of the German airmen who carried out the raid and pioneered a new and terrifying method of warfare. In addition, it recounts in graphic detail similar attacks by bombers, seaplanes and Zeppelins on other Kentish towns, including Dover, Ramsgate, Margate and Sheerness.
