Norman Franks; Alan Bennett Red Baron's Last Flight: An In-Depth Investigation into what Really Happened on the Day Von Richthofen was Shot Down. ISBN 13: 9781904943334. Red Baron's Last Flight: An In-Depth Investigation into what Really Happened on the Day Von Richthofen was Shot Down. Norman Franks; Alan Bennett. The proof is compelling' The Canada Post.

Much has been written about Manfred von Richthofen's last flight and combat on the morning of April 21st 1918, and much controversy remains to this day. Both authors have travelled to the sight of Richthofen's final crash, studied the landscape and have discovered what many eye-witnesses of the time could see, and more importantly, what they could not have seen. During research for "Under the Guns of the Red Baron", a file of letters written by eye-witnesses to von Richthofen's crash, dated in the 1930s, was discovered. These letters were written many years before later reports became clouded in the mists of time. The final result is a detailed account of von Richthofen's last flight in which he persued a Sopwith Camel across the allied front line, and ended in a mortal wound from a single bullet.

Norman Franks and Alan Bennett, preeminent aero-historians, have sifted through all the facts, distortions, and myths to arrive at a clear and precise conclusion reached first by P.J. Carisella and James Ryan back in 1969! See Who killed the Red Baron?. This book is well organized. The authors provide a historical context of the event and examine carefully, step by step, the components that make up the "mystery". Maps, photographs and diagrams (all superb!) amplify and elucidate the text. This is not a dry textbook as one reviewer suggests. This is fascinating, intriguing, and exciting (in my opinion!) history. I have read this book repeatedly and it never fails to captivate and absorb me! I highly recommend this book as well as Carisella and Ryan's book. Alan Bennett has come out with a book devoted to Roy Brown which may be of interest Captain Roy Brown. I have a Listmania List of resources devoted to the "Red Baron" Manfred von Richthofen that you can access here at Amazon. Another old but interesting title is Dale Titler's book The day the Red Baron died. He reaches a slightly different conclusion but it is compelling to read nonetheless!

This book is for anyone interested in the Red Baron. This is a very typical book written by Norman Franks. It is
VERY well researched and documented. This book should lay to rest the many stories concerning the Red
Baron's demise.

While The Red Baron's Last Flight has all the qualities of a textbook - dry and aged facts, paired with antiquated maps and grainy photos - it reads as a mystery novel. The initial chapters are concerned with Baron von Richtofen's Ace reputation and the circumstances of WWI that brought German forces against the Allies in Northern France in March 1918. The setting having been established, the numerous claims for downing the infamous red Fokker Dr.I triplane are then chronologically doled out. As each new claim is revealed, inaccuracies and inconsistencies are (sometimes comically) exposed through the authors' insight and proofs. As this is the first book I've read on the Red Baron, I can't comment on the qualitative accuracy or any bias on the part of the authors. However, it seems that Franks and Bennett were thorough in their investigation and I am convinced of the identity of the one true claimant.

When i saw this book in the bookshop i was thinking it was another historian knowing who shot down the red baron. as i pick it up and browsed through it. i started to read a chapter or two.i was amazed that how the author got right into the fact about the medical examination,the mapping and the witness of people who saw the crash. so i bought it and i was prowd of it. i have read many books about his death and i totally agree with Norman franks on how he was shot down. i recomend this book to any person who is interested in world war one aerial warfare. well writen and a book worth reading

The authors confirm the earlier judgement of P.J. Carisella's work "Who Shot the Red Baron." This most recent work contains numerous first hand accounts, particularly from the Allied side, of Richtofen's last flight. Particularly interesting are the actual reports submitted by those involved.
The authors combine their own practical flight experience, along with photographs (both period and today) of the famous "last flight" route, to convincingly determine and at point in the "last flight" Richtofen received his mortal wound, and who inflicted it. Addionally, they contend Richtofen made a "map reading" error that greatly contributed to the final outcome.
World War I aviation buffs will want to add this work to their collections.
