This was an excellent biography of the Red Baron for kids, albeit one focused mostly but not entirely on his military career It s long since out of print, of course, but I remember borrowing it from the library in third grade because I was a big fan of Peanuts and wanted to learn about this person that Snoopy was always trying to shoot down, and I enjoyed it so much that I went back and borrowed it again to re read a couple times over the next few years.
