First World War fighter ace Manfred von Richthofen, gallant young gentleman and dashing airman – the Red Baron – shot down a record 80 enemy aircraft in little over a year. It was an unprecedented achievement. Fighting over the front lines, using a deadly combination of marksmanship, steel-hard nerves and his outstanding talent for the new art of aerial combat, he became a legend in his own, short lifetime.

This lively autobiography, fully researched from original German sources by the noted First World War aviation historian Peter Kilduff, matches the legend to the reality. With exciting accounts of open-cockpit dogfights, and including some of Richthofen’s letters and writings, plus his Air Combat Operations Manual, it shows how the Red Baron helped shape air warfare right through to the present day.
