In 1917 Manfred von Richthofen wrote his autobiography, Der Rote Kampfflieger. In 1969, noted von Richthofen expert Peter Kilduff translated the work into English. Stanley M. Ulanoff was the work’s editor. It included not only the translation, but sections written by (and translated when necessary) his brothers, Lothar and Bolko von Richthofen, Captain Roy Brown, and Hermann Göring. Further, it contained many photographs of von Richthofen and other noted pilots, along with the aircraft they flew. Tables of other interesting information were included in the book. Today we are offering the ORIGINAL artwork used with the book. The front cover features a painting of “The Red Baron” while the rear cover shows von Richthofen’s famed Fokker Dr 1 Triplane in aerial combat with an enemy. These two paintings are mounted on a single board. Von Richthofen’s portrait measures 13 1/2” x 11 1/2.” The painting of the Triplane measures 11 1/4” x 7 1/2.” This is a rare opportunity to obtain original artwork related to Germany’s leading WW I ace, one of the greatest pilots of all time.
