Mussolini's Arctic Airship

Author: 

Eva Holland

This is a fascinating and well told story about arctic exploration, using the story of a doomed Italian airship expedition as a focal point. It is a great example of the strength of the short ebook format for history: there is enough space to tell the details that really bring the story to life, but no pressure to pad the story to "book length," which would slow it down. As it is, it is an enjoyable one-evening read from which I learned a lot that I didn't know about arctic exploration. I highly recommend it!
