Yet, his nickname – “Red Baron” – remains part of American vernacular. Charles Schulz’s comic strip character Snoopy famously took on the Red Baron in his imaginary air battles aboard his doghouse, often yelling “Curse you, Red Baron!” Movies and songs feature the German war hero.

To say that WWI was basically just an attempt of a quick landgrab ist not entirely accurate. While there were war-factions in all european countries of the time pressing for just that, they were effectivly hemmed in by the intricate net of contracts and pacts that were faciliated by Otto von Bismarck in the decade earlier. This net of contracts was of such nature that any european country declaring war on pretty much any other european country would lead to all other european countries having to side with one side, leading to a war on all fronts. This was the deterrent that Otto von Bismarck created and it held the war factions firm. However, at the time of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand Bismarck had been dead for a couple of years already and Wilhelm II, the current emperor of germany was a very weak leader, prefering hunting to politics. Some of the contracts that until this point had secured peace in europe were in need of renewal and Wilhelm II just didn't renew them. Most noticably a contract with the mighty russian empire had expired. This particular contract was to ensure that, in the case of germany declaring war or being war declared on, russia would stay neutral. This was because at the time russia had excellent relations with france and it was feared that in case of war russia would ally with france, forcing germany to fight a two frontier war. Furthermore, germany was allied to austria-hungary and bosnia was allied with the russian empire. For that reason austria hungary, although they'd really love to, could not just declare war on bosnia without the backing of germany. When archduke Franz ferdinand was assassinated this was a perfect justification for declaring war. Franz Joseph I, the current emperor of austria-hungary asked Wilhelm II for backing to declare war on bosnia. The next 48 hours were a true calvacade of miscommunication, missed communication and sheer stupidity. Basically what happened was that Wilhelm II was at a hunting trip and didn't want to be disturbed so he gave a blanket approval of support to the messanger of Franz-Joseph I, a messanger that unfortunatly belonged to the austria-hungarian war faction. With this blanket check of support austria-hungary declared war on bosnia and so did germany, faithul to their alliance. The russian empire on the other hand declared war on germany and austria hungary, faithful to their alliance with bosnia. The german military officials had long since planned various scenarios for war (as had pretty much any othe european state) and they intended to execute it. The problem was: This plan was severly outdated. It assumed that, in case of war with russia france would immedietly ally with the russian empire. Therefore the plan was to crush france first for then to concentrate the full might of the military on the eastern front. The plan assumed that france could basically just be swatted aside. Fun fact, while the austria-hungarian declaration of war on france was the frist one to be send, due to a mixup in the postal service the german declaration arrived first. All of this is of course the short version of things.

fumblerooskie (26 days ago)
I've read this account several times of how supposedly Brown was out of position to fire the killing shot. However, that only really applies if everybody was flying is a straight line, which is ridiculous given that they were in a dog fight, bobbing and weaving as they would have been doing. It's not hard to conceive how von Richthofen was killed by Brown, unless you're an Aussi and want to claim credit.
Yuri DeKhed (22 days ago)
fumblerooskie well done for demonstrating your lack of knowledge of both physics and aerial combat. The final time brown fired on Richthofen he fired from above and the left. The bullet that hit Richthofen came from below and the right........simple really.

I was expecting to see a video deconstructing the myth. Glad to know there are still historical figures who live up to their reputation. Sure, the man was a killer.

M Smith (11 days ago)
+Yuri DeKhed It certainly was. It took most of the war and continuous lobbying to group the Australian formations into one entity and have a 'native' commander. As soon as that happened, what do you know, we got multiple breakthroughs using home-grown tactics like 'peaceful penetration' and the first 'all arms' ( except the Navy of course ) coordinated assault tactics involving infantry, tanks and aircraft. Not quite blitzkrieg though, vehicles were too slow.

Brown (who was given credit for shooting him down) has been quoted as saying, "Any man would be proud to be the one to get to claim 'I shot down the Red Baron', but all men would have been more honored to capture him alive just to shake his hand." The respect as a warrior among fighting men was real on both sides.

I saw an excellent program about the forensics of his death. The evidence they presented overwhelmingly favored the theory that he was killed by Australian ground troops. One expert suggested that he may have flown so dangerously low because PTSD following his head wound clouded his judgment.

There was a terrible movie made a few years back showing Richthofen as some kind of conflicted, tormented soul who hated killing and hated the war. Quite at odds with a man who ordered little silver cups for every plane he shot down.

They were all just boys doing what they could for their country and what they thought was right. They all deserve respect I get there were horrible people who did horrible things in war but they are in civilian life to. There should of never been hate between the soldiers as they really had no other reason to kill other then they were told the opposite side is the enemy and they had to. I’m glad they gave the Red Baron a proper funeral sure he killed a lot of our men but you can tell it caught up to him and that he was just a boy who became a man.

So even if countries are enemies. Chivalry still exists between soldiers. Pay respect for worthy opponents. Especialy if the take down ALOT of people on your side. A enemy to watch out for is also an enemy one can respect for having such bravery and skills. No matter the side. One should try to respect one another as soldiers fighting for their countries. Even during wartime.

Not even one correctly pronounced german word/name as always :D I mean come on. By the rule of randomness you have to get one right sometimes, right? (the following is for the stupid comments before me) Well whatever, i wonder how well the muricans would like their own country if over 50 years of self pampering in school (encouraged by the government) didnt happen and they would have get told in detail for about 5 years straight in school on how many occasions they fucked over the native americans and other countrys in the world (in the last century), how much they would still hold on to their patriotism. Thats excactly what happens in german education. Theres a short while on everything before WW2 (stonage - egypt - ww1 and stuff) in year 1~4 and depending on which school form you continue on 5 - 9~12 its WW2 almost exclusively and nobody in germany is overly shy to talk about the stuff that happened, even though english speaking people like to ..joke.. about that all the time. In short, in germany rules educated sceptisism (annoyance) and well some ..other countrys.. blind patriotism. That and its troubled past just left germany as a country that just doesnt stupidly wag its countrys flag at every chance it gets at others faces to proof supperiority. Its americas job to be the most hated country on the globe and offending everyone they interact with by doing exactly that for quite some time now.

Matt Zeiders strange that his main rule of combat is (and this is s direct quote translated for you) "Aim for the man and don't miss him."
Throughout history, Warriors have paid respect to their counterparts of distinction. Warrior, in this sense, can range from a boxer to a military general. There is an unspoken code of respect we hold for worthy adversaries. We admire bravery and fortitude. Jesus did not die from crusifiction. He died from a wound given in mercy by Casius out of respect saved for great leaders, usually generals who showed valor in battle. Or at least that's how the story goes.

in case you care for future videos: if you see a "ei" in a German name/word, it is pronounced like "i" is in English (see pronuncation for Einstein for exampe. you don't say eensteen). If you see an "ie" in a German word, it's pronounced like "ee" is in English.
