I've been doing some casual research on Richthofen... I was fascinated to read about his leadership skills (in a separate article) when he took over a flying squadron and how he turned that squadron around. I bought this book to see if I could gain more insights into his leadership philosophy. This book didn't contain much of those insights, but it was still interesting reading about WWI and combat flying from his perspective. He was the leading ace of all nations in WWI with 80 victories so his perspective on the war and combat flying is interesting. He had fascinating personal anecdotes, but he didn't write a whole lot about his combat tactics or his leadership philosophy which would have interested me moreso.
