Heinrich explores the life of Manfred von Richthofen, a man who lived to be only twenty-five years old but who still had a tremendous impact on the lives of many. Affectionately nicknamed the Red Baron, Manfred von Richthofen was a living legend, widely known as the famous pilot who achieved an incredible eighty aerial victories, eclipsing all other aces of World War I. Against the backdrop of Richthofen’s positive attributes as a wartime hero, Heinrich carefully examines the Red Baron’s personality, technical skills, management style, leadership ability, strategies, and undaunted determination in order to help you improve your business interactions and personal life.
