Of that early cohort of air heroes, only Berthold and one other pilot survived the war. This book tells his remarkable story. Six weeks into the war, Berthold became the first airman in the 2nd Army area to be awarded an Iron Cross in recognition of his bravery and tenacity in combat. The symbolism of the award was appropriate. Described by one of his pilot prote'ge's as, 'an Iron Man - with an absolutely unbendable iron will', he was a dedicated patriot. And, after he became a fighter pilot, he demonstrated a fierce fighting spirit in many encounters with British and French adversaries.
All of his aerial combats with other Pour le Me'rite flyers are detailed in this book.
Indeed, Berthold was so relentless in his approach to aerial combat, when badly wounded, on at least six occasions, he cut short his convalescent leave to return to flying with his comrades. This included a hit to his right arm, which shattered the bone, rendering it useless - undaunted Berthold taught himself to fly using his left.
Peter Kilduff has produced a landmark volume based on extensive research into Rudolf Berthold's life and military career to form the most complete account yet about Germany's sixth highest scoring fighter ace of WWI. Illustrated with over eighty photographs and other artworks, many of which have never been published before, Iron Man tells the tale of this ruthless, fearless and, above all, very patriotic fighter whose perseverance and bravery made him one of the most famous airmen of World War I.

The author did a good job of taking the diary of Berthold, the papers and letters between his sister and him, and the official records from both sides to talk about what actually happened in the air war in certain meetings between Berthold and his foes. Berthold was not only a good flier but his determination to fight set him apart from many of his contemporaries. He was wounded on several occasions and was severely wounded and yet continued to fly ev Interesting book about a complex character.
To mark the occasion, The A. Club is revisiting all 21 movies in this mega-franchise through a single, significant scene in each: not the best or most memorable scene, necessarily, but the one that says something about the MCU as an ongoing blockbuster phenomenon. This is The Marvel Moment.

For the MCU, this unfortunate trend began with Iron Man 2 , whose finale found Tony Stark and Rhodey fighting empty suits—an all too fitting symbol for what was to come. The Winter Soldier. Immediately, everything else goes away—Tony just wants an eye for an eye. The fight showcases the personal stakes that drive this franchise, and that hold the key to the success of the entire MCU.
People love these films in spite of their overheated finales, not because of them barring a few excellent exceptions , of course. And by staging an action sequence rooted firmly in an all-too-understandable falling out between its most iconic characters, directors Joe and Anthony Russo were able to give a visceral emotional impact to the excitement of a hero-on-hero struggle. Every brutal punch and injury lands not just physically but psychologically and symbolically. A friendship that had defined the Avenger films was being ripped apart.
