The Red Baron Combat Wing - Jagdgeschwader Richthofen in Battle

Author(s): Peter Kilduff

First World War

Though Manfred von Richtofen was undoubtedly the finest aviator of his day, part of the success he enjoyed and the charisma he generated may be credited to those who followed him and continued his tactics, particularly his revolutionary unit. The author evaluates the work of Jagdgeschwader 1, the Red Baron's revolutionary unit, and shows how Richtofen and colleagues tested new aircraft and tactics on the hoof as the air war developed over the World War I battlefields.
