What People are Saying About This

Thomas Crean

The Fall of the Red Baron is a clinical dissertation of the men and weapons on the ground (the infantry), as well as those aircraft that the Allies put up in the sky to try and maintain air superiority over the lines. The book goes on to explain how Manfred von Richthofen chose his victims and how he went about defeating them in the air utilizing simple logic and pre–planned techniques ? I was duly impressed with the magnitude of the research done by the author, concerning Richthofen's mentor – Boelcke, who not only spelled out air fighting's internal rules, but taught them to beginners – including Richthofen ? Overall, I was very impressed with the quality of references and fact checking that the author did, and the easy way that he presented his material. I would recommend this book for any World War One enthusiast's shelf. "
