The Red Fighter Pilot (German: Der Rote Kampfflieger) is a book written by Manfred von Richthofen, a famous German fighter pilot ace with eighty air combat victories to his credit. Richthofen's most common German nickname was Der Rote Kampfflieger.
The book details some of Richthofen's experiences during World War I. He finished the book in 1917, and as it was written during the World War I, it was subjected to war-time censorship.
Richthofen was killed in combat in 1918. The Red Fighter Pilot was the only book he ever wrote.
