    The infamous Red Baron's life and career were both terribly short but in that stretch of time he gained a great deal of credit for shooting down an unheard of number of planes After a certain point air force bombers were retired at least until things really hit the fan at the end of the war Young Von Richtofen was dead by then He refused to retireI have marked this as a primary source which is not really correct since the man did not live to write his memoirs It does contain a number of valuable primary sources such as photographs and photographs of letters and when my daughter and I did a home school assignment involving the First World War this was a must have since she was interested in the air warIf you search for sources on the Red Baron you will be amazed how thin they are on the ground given his fame Part of the cost of losing a war is having a lot of your history gone at least in many cases This is a treasure

    Has hasn't heard of the Red Baron? Even Snoopy himself considers this man worth imitating He is the stuff legends are made of A hero in War A fierce competitor A dare devil with such amazing skill that he painted his fleets planes RED so that others would actually see them coming and know fear Where most war pilots at this time had a life span of only weeks Manfred managed to defy death for years and make the most kills until a stray bullet took him down at the tender age of 25 This book gives detailed accounts of his history accompanied by amazing photographs Its worth having in your library

    The book was essentially a pictorial history of Richthofen's war achievements It was a little dry and a little too detail heavy too many specifics not enough of the bigger picture but it was an enjoyable easy read
