Caption: Oswald Boelcke (1891-1916), German fighter pilot during World War I (1914-1918). Boelcke shot down forty enemy planes during World War I and was the pilot with the most victories up until his death in a flying accident during a battle. He was the first to formalise the tactics of aerial combat and taught a number of flying aces including Manfred von Richthofen, or the Red Baron.
