Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen, the Red Baron, was the most successful fighter pilot of World War I, shooting down 80 enemy airplanes and receiving more high decorations than any other German combatant.
In Red Baron: The Life and Death of an Ace, Peter Kilduff tells the story of this courageous and charismatic man: his comrades and enemies, the planes he flew, the battles he fought in, the political climate that caused his eventual disenchantment and the controversial circumstances of his death.
Containing previously unpublished photographs, drawings on new source material from former East German state archives and making fresh insights into existing sources, Red Baron is the most up-to-date reference on the life of a legend.
