Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0979194601, Hardcover)

A contemporary of the 'Red Baron', Rampant Lion provides the reader with a detailed look into the colorful life and times of Eduard Ritter von Schleich, a highly decorated First World War fighter pilot. His courage, dedication, and self-sacrifice earned him the coveted 'Blue Max', as well as the everlasting respect of his fellow countrymen. Containing more than 150 photos, along with clear and concise maps and charts, Rampant Lion is both highly informative and entertaining. Many first hand accounts of aerial combat have been included, providing the reader with an intimate look at what it really was like to fly and fight in the skies high above the trenches during the 'Great War'. The premise of this book is to present an accurate and un-biased picture of his life, using a variety of sources, both archival and otherwise. While much has been written of von Schleich in the past, Rampant Lion is the first real attempt to sift through this information, make certain of its accuracy, and consolidate it within a single source. This is his story.
