The Red Baron is the tale of the infamous World War I pilot with a string of successful combat missions - his success was so spectacular that his name has passed into popular culture and something of a myth has grown up around his exploits. Well, adding to that myth is this fictionalized account of his ascent from student to fearsome pilot.

Manfred von Richthofen is an exemplary student, staying abreast of his contemporaries at the Military Academy and even striding ahead in gymnastics class. It’s the latter that brings him into a confrontation with Prince Friedrich and his cronies, angry to have been bettered by Richthofen’s gymnastic prowess. But the confrontation doesn’t go as the Prince plans because of an inexplicable ability that surfaces within Richthofen - from the moment he realised he was in danger Richthofen has become aware of his adversaries feelings and as the situation intensifies he realises he can pre-judge their moves, meaning he’s able to better all of them on his own.

After the academy Richthofen serves in the cavalry before the encroaching war gets him re-assigned to the fledgling air force. It’s such new technology that it’s very uncommon to even see an enemy plane. The question is, will Richthofen’s abilities be an asset in the sky as he enters his first aerial battle?
