In todays' Daily Telegraph the propaganda war over the Zeppelin raids continued, as the New York World prints an interview with a German Zeppelin pilot about the recent raid of London. Not that the Telegraph was accepting what was being said, for the article republishing this is at pains to point out it isn’t wholly truthful (page 9). Meanwhile a picture of the Royal Palace at Stuttgart on page 3 reveals this building was attacked in reprisal raids for German bombings.
