Presenter: Dr Leo Murphy


When the Red Baron, Manfred Von Richthofen, was fatally wounded on April 21, 1918 in his brightly-painted red Fokker triplane, he was only twenty-five years old and the most successful ace of World War I. He had shot down 80 Allied airmen, a total that remained the highest number of air victories of the war. Dr Murphy will discuss the life, service and death of Richthofen, as well as providing a broad overview of the history of aviation during World War I.
