An Aviator's Field Book by Oswald Boelcke( Book )

4 editions published between 1917 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An unassuming book, still one of those which grip the reader from beginning to end. When the author started to write his daily impressions and adventures, it was to keep in touch with his people, to quiet those who feared for his safety every moment, and at the same time to give them a clear idea of his life. Without boasting, modestly and naturally, he describes the adventures of an aviator in the great World War. It could well serve as a guide to those who are studying aviation. Although he has avoided the stilted tone of the school-master, still his accomplishments as a knight of the air must fascinate any who know aviation. For the aviators as well as their machines have accomplished wonders. They are rightly called the eyes of the army - - these iron-nerved boys who know no fear. Admiral Schley's historic words after the battle of Santiago: "There will be honor enough for us all" can well be said of the aviators of all nations now at war. For in spite of all enmity the aviators have followed the knightly code of old which respects a good opponent and honors him."--Back cover

There can be little doubt that the most iconic fighter pilot of the First World War on the Western Front was the aristocratic German 'ace of aces,' Baron Manfred von Richtohofen. Known universally, due to his particularly conspicuous bright-red coloured Fokker Albatros triplane, as the 'Red Baron,' he and the equally gaudy aircraft of his comrades of the 'Flying Circus' were no mere publicity stunts as their counterparts among the French and British squadrons who opposed them could attest, often to their fatal cost. In fact, Richtohofen's personal kill record was 80--more than any pilot in the conflict. Just twenty-six years old when he was eventually killed in 1918, he might justifiably be described as the most famous fighter pilot of all time. Fortunately for posterity, Richtohofen found the time to write a book of his experiences, the well regarded The Red Battle Flyer. It will be a familiar text to many of those interested in the Great War in the air. It is accompanied in this special Leonaur edition by the account of another incredibly significant German fighter pilot of the period, Oswald Böelcke. Böelcke was nothing less than the Red Baron's mentor and Richtohofen's admiration for him was significant. Certainly, Böelcke was responsible for defining the craft of aerial combat and his leadership and tactical skills are regarded as original and highly influential. He was particularly concerned with the benefits and capabilities of formation fighting. An ace in his own right, he had 40 victories to his credit before he too was killed at the tragically young age of twenty five in 1916, whilst on patrol with Richtohofen himself. --Publisher's website
