Richthofen by A E Ferko
'RED BATTLE FLYER!'
The late A E (Ed) Ferko's superb and richly-illustrated study of Germany's leading fighter pilot, which also includes detailed appendices and notes to support the unique narrative. Includes 15 colour profiles of the aircraft most associated with der rote kampflieger, plus a detailed discussion of that fateful April day...84 pages of pure aviation history at its best.
This is a superlative record of Germany's leading fighter pilot, which also includes detailed appendices and notes. There are 203 photos (many hitherto unpublished) that trace the Baron's WWI career. In 84 pages, Ed Ferko offers readers a unique, fresh insight into Germany's Ace of Aces; also included are four colour pages with 15 colour profiles of the Baron's aeroplanes.Possibly the most thoughtful and balanced biography of von Richthofen ever committed to print and certainly one of the best illustrated.
