Before the Red Baron: Leffers, of the original German aces


Gustav Leffers, German ace, will be the subject of this second-Saturday open house talk, Saturday August 13th, at noon during the 10-4 open house at the VAFM. Andy Parks will be speaking about Leffers, one of the original German aces, who was a combat veteran already when the Red Baron was just starting out. Leffers received the "Blue Max" medal, the 11th recipient for Germany. He was killed flying a French plane he had captured.

The transcript of last month's talk is almost finished; it is available as "Hard Luck Ace".
