New Zeppelin Crash Mail Book

Author/researcher Dieter Leder writes to let Round-Up readers know about his new book, LZ-129 Hindenburg Zeppelin Crash Mail.

According to Dieter, "75 years ago, on May 6, 1937, airship LZ-129 Hindenburg crashed at Lakehurst, NJ. The cause of the crash is not yet finally determined. And many questions are still unanswered in connection with the mail onboard: Of the 17,500 mail articles onboard, only 357 were officially recovered."

He goes on to say, "The first two chapters are dealing with the pre-crash mail dispatch at Frankfurt Auslandsstelle (foreign section) and Luftpoststelle (airmail section). Chapter three is dealing with the operation of the onboard post office. Chapter four is dealing with the American eastbound mail dispatch. And then comes the crash....The following ten chapters are dealing with the nine mail findings in the wreckage. Chapter 16 is dealing with the forwarding of the eastbound mail which should have made the Hindenburg return flight."

The hardbound book has 300 illustrations (many in full color) and will be available end of April 2012/early May 2012 depending on the delivery from the printer. Round-Up readers can pre-order the book at a special discounted price.
