“By restoring the significance of the air raid in the Great War…Grayzel has further embellished her deserved reputation as one of the most imaginative and respected authorities on the First World War.”—Martin Francis, University of Cincinnati

“A major achievement, providing us with a complexly argued and exhaustively researched account of British responses to the threat of aerial attack, one that illuminates the vital role of gender in how war was imagined and anticipated.”
—Geoffrey Field, author of Twentieth Century British History
