Customer Review

on November 22, 2008
M. v.Richthofen may well end up being a boring Hero. Disciplined, methodical, practical...and opportunistic, The Red Baron's airplane and title were more exciting than the "real" man. Kilduff plays it for history, not drama. No sex scandals, no rakish behavior, no grandstanding, no arrogance - The Red Barron was simply a guy who decided to be good at his job of killing other people with his airplanes - at least that's how Kilduff records him.

Based on history, Kilduff is probably right on, too. Nevertheless, don't let the warning of "dryness" scare away. Kilduff brings to light many interesting, periodic details that will tickle aviation, history and general readers alike. Surely, this book is worth buying - for self or as a gift. Just don't expect Sagittarius Rising - now THAT is a WW1 story (but no where near as legendary).

Credit goes to Kilduff for telling it like it is. Thank you.
