In The Red Baron, graphic artist and author Wayne Vansant illustrates the incredible story of Manfred von Richthofen, whose unparalleled piloting prowess as a member of the Imperial German Army Air Service made him a World War I celebrity both in the air and on the ground.
Vansant beautifully depicts the fearsome intelligence and mid-flight awareness that would earn Richthofen eighty documented air combat victories over the Western Front in the halcyon days of military aviation. Richthofen died young under controversial circumstances, but the Red Baron’s astonishing skill and tactical acumen lived on far long after his death and helped usher in a new type of warfare: war in the air.
