If you are interested in a thorough breakdown of the Red Baron's short, but heroic career, then this is a great book for you. Using parts of Manfred's autobiography, war correspondence, his mother's war diaries, various letters from other pilots to their families, and the author's own exhausting study, you get a great picture of the man. Not as a murdering, twisty mustached terror of the skies, but as a warrior, who respected his adversaries (and they him), who did his best to defend his country. The author wisely takes no position on WWI politics, as it is unnecessary to the narrative. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in WWI aviation and/or the legend of the Red Baron.
