The famous battle memoirs of the Red Baron.

The Red Battle-Flyer, or Red Fighter Pilot, (German: Der Rote Kampfflieger) is a book written by Manfred von Richthofen, the most famous German fighter pilot ace. During his time over the Western Front he achieved eighty air combat victories, making him the top-scoring fighter pilot of the First World War.

The book details some of Richthofen’s experiences during World War I. He finished the book in 1917 during a convalescence from wounds, and as it was written during the World War I, it was subjected to war-time censorship. He would fight on wreaking havoc among Allied airmen until 1918 when he was finally downed, the final vanquisher of the famous Red Baron is still disputed but seems that he met his end from ground fire.
