Just over a decade after the Wright Brothers triumph of powered flight, the conduct of war was changed for ever. Until the Kaisers Zeppelins raided British cities and towns, it had been unthinkable that civilian populations and property hundreds of miles from the battlefield could be at risk from sudden death and destruction.In the first section of The Baby Killers Thomas Fegan charts the precise chronology of the air raids on Britain in this most thorough and fascinating work. From the start-point of the doom-laden prophecies of HG Wells and others, he describes the development of the German threat and the desperate search for answers to it. He analyses public reaction and assesses the effectiveness of the campaign as it progressed from airships to Gotha heavy bombers and, later, Giants.The second part of this superbly researched book features a gazetteer to the places bombed. The extent of the list, which includes Edinburgh, Hull and Greater Manchester, will almost certainly surprise most readers. Helpfully there are also comprehensive lists of memorials and relevant museums. The Baby Killers provides a chilling insight into an aspect of The Great War which is all too often overlooked. Yet, at the time, these raids, while modest compared with those of the Second World War Blitz, shook nationalmorale and instilled great fear and outrage. This is an important and highly readable work.

An anthology of True Crime focused on women who killed children, even their own. ALEXANDRA TOBIAS - On January 19th, 2010, 22 year old Alexandra Tobias was playing Farmville on Facebook at home in Jacksonville, Florida when she was interrupted by the cries of her three month old baby, Dylan. She tried to silence him by shaking him roughly - hitting his head in the process. The child fell unconscious and she placed a frantic call to 911. The child would be taken to the hospital where he would die the next day. Alexandra would be arrested for second degree murder. Just over a year later, on February 1st 2011, Tobias was sentenced to 50 years in prison. "He who is the most defenceless among us was murdered by his own mommy. And why? Because he was crying during a game of Fishville or Farmville or whatever was going on during Facebooking time that day," the presiding Judge Adrian G Soud said. In the time between the crime and the sentencing , news organizations across America picked up the story.Why would Alexandra kill her baby?KATHLEEN FOLBIGG - Kathleen Folbigg was a serial child killer who murdered her three infant children and was convicted for the manslaughter of a fourth. Her killings would take place over the course of an eight-year period during in which she was never suspected. She would only be discovered after her husband discovered her personal diary in which she detailed the motivations behind her killing spree. This is her story.SUSAN SMITH - The idea of a mother who kills her children will always capture the attention of the nation, and in some cases the entire world will tune in as they did in Smith's situation, at first with sympathy and then with outrage. Why would someone commit the most unspeakable of acts? How could a mother kill her child? In 1994, these questions were asked of Susan Smith, a young woman living in Union of South Carolina during an unusual case.CHRISTINE RIGGS - Christina Marie Riggs was convicted of murdering her two young children in Arkansas in 1997. Three years later, she would become the first woman executed in that state since 1845. Struggling with depression and mental health issues, Riggs succumbed to her own warped world view in a botched murder/suicide of her own children leaving an entire nation asking "why"?
