The mysterious events of April 21, 1918, the day the legendary Red Baron met his end, have kept the world captivated for decades.
There have been many theories, articles and books concerning exactly what took place but all previous accounts have been overshadowed by this ground breaking book. Here is the definitive answer to one of history's most compelling mysteries.
Taking you straight to the site of Richthofens final crash, leading aviation historian Norman Franks and pilot Alan Bennett dissect the evidence and expose what only eyewitnesses could see, complimented by a host of forensic and historical facts that illustrate in detail what actually occurred, when and how.
'A satisfying end to a series of unanswered mysteries.'
The Sunday Times
