Read full description of the books:
When Manfred von Richthofen, a young aristocrat in the German cavalry went to war in August, 1914, he experienced the end of one era and the beginning of another. After several harrowing experiences and narrowly escaping with his life, Richthofen found himself living in holes in the ground as the western battlefield of World War One became stagnant and lethal. Disillusioned and desperate, Richthofen looked upward for escape.
The Astonished Earth- Book One tells the story of the end of cavalry, the advent of trench warfare and the emergence of early military aviation through the eyes of the Red Baron. It is also the story of the origin of the Red Baron legend that lives on today.
In the Astonished Earth series, Christopher Beck takes you to the time of heroic aviators, blending little known historical detail with soaring portrayals of aerial battle. You will visit a time when aviation brought a sense of wonder to mankind and hell existed on earth. You will meet Anthony Fokker, the archetype of the modern technology baron and Oswald Boelcke, who, more than any other single individual invented aerial combat. The stories of the great French pilot Roland Garros and Manfred Richthofen’s ultimate nemesis, Lanoe Hawker, converge in the skies over the Somme River battlefields of 1916, leaving Richthofen the pre-eminent combat pilot of the war.
Mr. Beck tells a unique story, from a fresh perspective: How did Richthofen become an icon? And how did he inspire the imagination of that era, in a way that still holds mystery today?
Hero or villain, famous or infamous, The Red Baron is a modern legend and myth.
Welcome to the story of his legend. Welcome to the Astonished Earth.
