THE LUFTSCHIFFBAU ZEPPELIN WORKS AT FRIEDRICHSHAVEN

This series of photographs, above and opposite, of the Zeppelin Works at Friedrichshafen where light metal castings for Radar equipment, aircraft and tank parts were produced, shows the transition of construction and camouflage which took place from February 20th, 1943 until its eventual destruction. Attacks by aircraft of Bomber Command, the U.S. 8th and 15th Air Forces all contributed to damaging this plant over a period of 18 months, and hindering production to a considerable degree; the final destruction of the giant hangar (see opposite page) was affected by the Mediterranean based U.S. 15th Air Force; note how the giant doors at each end have collapsed inwards.
