Kilduff, a distinguished historian of World War I aviation, here offers almost equally distinguished, illustrated coverage of the career of Manfred von Richthofen, the legendary Red Baron. Making use of material, including photographs, from Richthofen family archives that were long sequestered by the Communists, Kilduff comprehensively summarizes Richthofen's career, mentors, comrades, aircraft, and opponents. The fragility of World War I aircraft and the death rate of those who flew them have to be studied carefully to be believed. Kilduff, a careful student, acknowledges dire reality and makes no pretense of speaking to more romantic aviation buffs. Instead, he valuably supplements his excellent Richthofen: Beyond the Legend of the Red Baron (1993), not least with a superior collection of graphic material concerning World War I aviation generally.
