Description: Berkhamsted, Albatros. 1995. (ISBN: 0948414840) Soft Cover. 80 pp, 11 11/16" H, stapled in wraps. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, 2 pages of colour aircraft profiles. "Few fighting men of any nation, indeed of any modern war, have attained the near legendary status of Germany's WWI 'ace of aces' Rittmeister Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen. Who has not heard of 'The Red Baron' and his equally famous Fokker Triplane? In this candid reassessment of the man, respected WWI aviation writer A E Ferko separates facts from fiction, offering fresh insights into von Richthofen's character as well as presenting many accepted facts about the airman's life and career in a completely new light. The author supports the narrative with over 200 photographs from his own extensive archive and while some are familiar, others published for the first time will surprise even the most informed followers of the von Richthofen story. To complement the contents there are detailed color plates depicting a selection of aeroplanes flown by von Richthofen, several of which have never been illustrated before. The result of many years' study of original German documents and personal correspondence, (this) is an important and valuable addition to WWI aviation literature ."
