6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Keen First World War aviation enthusiasts will be familiar with Norman Franks' previous books covering the life of Rittmeister Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen, so why this new one? Well Manfred, the iconic Red Baron, has constantly remained at the forefront of First World War studies and, in commemorating the one hundred years that have elapsed since the beginning of hostilities, it seems like a good time to introduce a new arrangement of photographs covering the entire span of von Richthofen's war (most of which will have been seen, but spread over a whole variety of books and magazines about First World War flying), consolidated in one book."--Publisher description
