Overview
-

Manfred von Richthofen - the Red Baron - was the most celebrated fighter pilot of the First World War, and was holder of the Blue Max, Pour le Mérite, Germany's highest military decoration. He was credited with 80 victories in the air, before being shot down in disputed circumstances aged 26. In this autobiography Richthofen tells not only his own story but also that of his contemporaries, their duels in the sky, ever present danger, fame, honour and spiralling death.

REVIEWS
-

“…this is one of those rare times when we get to read exactly what someone who “was there” really thought and did as he was doing it. Often candid, it brings the man behind the myth to life”

- The Great War Magazine
