One name epitomizes the spirit of the air war in WWI, Baron Manfred von Richthofen, the Red Baron. Richthofen tells not only his own story, but also that of his contemporaries, their duels in the sky, ever-present danger, fame, honor, and spiralling death. Beginning the war as a cavalry officer, he joined the flying sevice to escape the boredom of ground warfare. He quickly showed complete mastery of the art of the fighter pilot and went on to great fame and legend. He was just twenty-five when he was killed on April 21, 1918 while flying over the Somme valley. Manfred von Richthofen wrote his autobiography in 1917, some months before his death. Norman Franks is an acknowledged expert on aviation history.
