Folkestone books: General Interest

A Glint in the Sky: German Air Attacks on Folkestone, Dover, Ramsgate, Margate
A Glint in the Sky: German Air Attacks on Folkestone, Dover, Ramsgate, Margate

Martin Easdown's compelling account of the German air raid on Folkestone in 1917 and its appalling aftermath is the first comprehensive history of an episode to be published. He gives a dramatic description of the event, relying heavily on the eyewitness testimony from the townspeople who were there on that fateful day. He records the experiences of the German airmen who carried out the raid and pioneered a new and terrifying method of warfare. In addition, he recounts in graphic detail similar attacks by bombers, seaplanes and Zepplins on other Kentish towns, including Dover, Ramsgate, Margate and Sheerness.
