The Red Baron.

Manfred von Richthofen, ‘The Red Baron’, was arguably the most famous fighter ace of the First World War. Born in 1892 to an aristocratic East Prussian family, Richthofen first joined the German Army as a cavalry officer, then transferred to the Imperial German Air Service, serving as a pilot against Russia. In mid-1916 he was recruited by the famous German flying ace Oswald Boelcke and joined the Royal Prussian Jagdstaffel 11 (No. 11 Fighter Squadron), commonly known as Jasta 11. Following Boelcke’s death in an accident later that year, Richthofen quickly became the unit’s leading fighter ace.

Through the use of advanced machinery (in the form of the Albatros D.III) and air combat tactics, by April 1917, Jasta 11 had gained total air superiority. Manfred von Richthofen was its top ace, having claimed a large proportion of the Squadron’s victories in what came to be known as ‘Bloody April’.
