Ace of the Iron Cross (Air combat classics) - Ernst Udet Udet (1896-1941) began the First World War as a dispatch rider in the German Army, subsequently paid for his own pilot lessons, and returned to the Western Front as a 2-seater pilot in 1916. Two years later, having survived the rigors of aerial combat, he flew for a time under the command of Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen, the legendary "Red Baron", and went on to lead his own squadron. He survived the war as Germany's second-ranking ace and embarked upon a peacetime career as a test pilot and internationally-renowned stunt flyer.
