Richthofen was a born leader. Sharp as a razor in service matters; at all times fair, especially in the air over the Front. He saw everything. He gave new men in the Jasta every chance to score a victory. He gave away many victories, if by doing so the young pilot was able to score his first kill. He protected every member of the flight (as much as) possible, but there was no pardon if a pilot sneaked away from a fight. That pilot would be transferred immediately.
