New Download Richthofenby William E. Burrows For Kindle ePUB or eBook – groundhogwalking.co.uk

Richthofen Manfred von Richthofen, the Red Baron, has proven to be the most durable of modern war heroes Besides being World War I s highest scoring ace, he was a Wagnerian hero for the German in two world wars, has had one of his country s new jet squadron s named for him, and is the unseen anti hero of the universally popular Peanuts comic strip.Mr Burrows believes that the analysis of he Red Baron s mystique cannot be left to aviation buffs alone The young Prussian s thirst for fame, compulsion for hunting, apparent indifference to women, relationship with his mother, and obedience to Prussian tradition were all part of forces that made him the ace of aces Beyond these strong forces, however, lay the shadowy put pervasive propaganda machine, an official apparatus which was obliged to inflate Germany s heroes in an attempt to keep a war weary population s mind off empty stomachs and the clear Communist threat to the Kaiser s weakening regime The war could not be won, and Richthofen knew it Berlin and its propagandists gave Richthofen the fame he sought Command and the coveted Blue Max medal were his But in the end he choked on his fame and the adulation that followed in its train Sadly, he was to be as useful to the Fatherland dead as he had been alive.

  1. Just 100 years ago for perspective, when your grandparents were probably alive , every soldier, most people in England, and possibly many in America knew this name which had nothing to do with pizza or a cartoon beagle In my boyhood I read everything I could find about von Richthofen, andrecently have perused many of the newer books about him But this particular one by Burrows is, in my opinion, still the best Written in 1969, the author even interviewed one the Baron s surviving fel Just 100 years ago for perspective, when your grandparents were probably alive , every soldier, most people in England, and possibly many in America knew this name which had nothing to do with pizza or a cartoon beagle In my boyhood I read everything I could find about von Richthofen, andrecently have perused many of the newer books about him But this particular one by Burrows is, in my opinion, still the best Written in 1969, the author even interviewed one the Baron s...

  2. I m a history buff, of sorts, and I thoroughly admire Manfred von Richthofen I had read a number of books about him, including his own autobiography, before I picked up this book, so I can t say how great it is as an introduction to the famous ace That said, I still managed to enjoy reading this bio Burrows can compose a neat turn of phrase and his research is solid I dock one star due to the extra 3 chapters at the end of the book which discussed the German Air Force post Richthofen They w I m a history buff, of sorts, and I thoroughly admire Manfred von Richthofen I had read a number of books about him, including his own autobiography, before I picked up this book, so I can t say how great it is as an introduction to the famous ace That said, I still managed to enjoy reading this bio Burrows can compose a neat turn of phrase and his research is solid I dock one star due to the extra 3 chapters at the end of the book which discussed the German Air Force post Richthofen They were too summative and the writing had a cold sort of feel, in addition to being boring and completely unnessesary I felt it w...

  3. The Red Baron has been very interesting to me since I played the 1990 video game titled The Red Baron This book was decent I guess my main complaint is that for a figure as fascinating as Richthofen, the book should ve been better I wish that the book hadmaps, which would ve made a lot of the stories action easier to understand I read a library book and the maps on the inside covers were not visible It just would ve been nice if every few chapters there was a map of where he was flyi The Red Baron has been very interesting to me since I played the 1990 video game titled The Red Baron This book was decent I guess my main complaint is that for a figure as fascinating as Richthofen, the book should ve been better I wish that the book hadmaps, which would ve made a lot of the stories action easier to understand I read a library book and the maps on the inside covers were not visible It just would ve been nice if every few cha...

  4. This seems to be a decent biography and it appears the author did his research before writing He mentions that some original material was destroyed in WWII The final chapters deal with the legacy of the Baron and how his memory and actions were used during and after the war If not for the war it is possible Richthofen never would have flown a plane The war gave him the opportunity to fly and develop the skills that made him the famed warrior He was a hunter before he every flew for the firs This seems to be a decent biography and it appears the author did his research before writing He mentions that some original material was destroyed in WWII The final chapters deal with the legacy of the Baron and how his memory and actions were used during and after the war If not for the war it is possible Richthofen never would have flown a plane The war gave him the opportunity to fly and develop the skills that made him the famed warrior He was a hunter before he every flew for the first time and he used his knowedge of hunting hone his arial hunting skills It is always interesting to note the genuine respect arial enemies had for each other Frequently their relations were starkly different from the infantry in the trenches The tendancy to ...

  5. This was a pretty good book I appreciated the photographs, although the photo of Richthofen s dead body that that one collector had said he had but wasn t published has since come out I suppose it s a little morbid of me to note though Also interesting was the photo of the tomb on the other side of the Berlin Wall, which is obviously no .There isn t really a whole lot of information on Richthofen as an individual, perhaps because he lived a relatively simple life, or perhaps because of This was a pretty good book I appreciated the photographs, although the photo of Richthofen s dead body that that one collector had said he had but wasn t published has since come out I suppose it s a little morbid of me to note though Als...
