"Red Baron: The Life and Death of an Ace" tells the story of Manfred von Richthofen - from awkward 11-year-old cadet to fearless aerial combatant and charismatic leader."Red Baron" is not just a biography of an extraordinary hero, it also takes a wider look at the times in which he lived: the equipment, his enemies and comrades, the battles, the political climate that led to his eventual disenchantment and new evidence about the controversial circumstances of his death.Containing previously unpublished photographs and accounts from Richthofen himself, his 'circus' and his adversaries, this book is the most up-to-date reference on the life and times of the legend.
