Publisher's Summary

Manfred von Richthofen (1892 - 1918), also widely known as the Legendary Red Baron, was a German fighter pilot with the Imperial German Army Air Service during World War I. He is considered the ace of aces of that war, being officially credited with 80 air combat victories, more than any other pilot. The Red Baron only wrote one book, his "autobiography", Der Rote Kampfflieger. This was written on the instructions of the German Army Press and Intelligence (i.e. propaganda) section of the German Army Air Service. This book was written just before he was killed, and it details his meteoric rise from a cavalryman to one of the most well-known fighter pilots of all time.

Narration was rushed

The narrator needed to pause more at the end of each section and then after giving the title of the next section. It all ran together.

Compelling and Prescient

Richthofen presents a unique perspective of a warrior who is operating in a then nascent aspect of warfare. Although the reading of this intriguing biography lacks enunciation and is rather flat, the performance does not take away from the legendary tales or from the insightful thoughts Richthofen offers of conflict and aeronautic development.
