Ernst Udet ended the First World War as the 2nd-highest scoring German flying ace - his 62 victories being 18 behind the “Red Baron” Manfred von Richthofen. (Above, Udet poses at the rear of his Fokker D VII. “Du doch nicht!” translates roughly to “Certainly not you!”. The “Lo!” on the side is a reference to his childhood sweetheart, Eleanor Zink) Udet was to become a key figure in German aviation, on his way to naziism and the luftwaffe.
