BOOK – THE RED BATTLE FLYER – BY CAPTAIN MANFRED FREIHERR VON RICHTHOFEN.
This is the autobiography of Manfred von Richthofen, the “Red Baron.” It was first published in Germany during 1917. While I am not certain of the exact date when it was written, I believe it took place during his recovery after being shot down in July of that year. This is a first English-language edition, which was published in New York in July 1918, after von Richthofen’s death. It is illustrated on a limited basis. The book does not have a dust jacket and shows some damage on the outside binding. The volume remains sound structurally and can be read with no difficulty. It is a consignment item.
