Of course! The Condor Squadron! I KNEW the name Baron von Freulich sounded familiar. Back in 1918 he was his country's top ace, with eighty-four kills to his credit. They say that when the war ended he flew into a rage. He wanted to raise his score to an even hundred. Looks like he's never gotten over his disappointment. The sooner we get out of here tomorrow the better.
