Kampfgruppe 88 in Spain

Hallo

I am researching merchant ships which were attacked - both at sea and in port - by this squadron during the Spanish civil war.

It would be appreciated if anyone could privde me with any information whatsover regarding these atacks, dates, successes etc and any other background information such as where they were based in Spain, lossess etc.

I am only interested in their actions against shipping and not attacks on land. If anyone does - and it is a big hope - anyone can direct me to where I could obtain the same information on Italian aircraft I would indeed be indebted to you.

Thanks for taking the time and trouble to reply - you may contact me direct if you wish at sinbadqrm@yahoo.co.uk

Regards and hope you find what you are looking for

David

Hello David,
K88 did not atack merchant ships. That was the task of the AS/88.
There are several published books on the subject.
Regards

Re: Kampfgruppe 88 in Spain

Thank yo Fran for taking the time and trouble to provide me with the info - being ex Merchant Navy only have a limited knowledge on anything which does not float on water.

Would it be too much trouble to ask if you could suggest the names/ISBN of the books you mentioned - would appreciate it if you could.

If you would like to know anything about tankers please ask and will do my best to provide the correct info

David

AS/88 fly the one and only Torpedoattack against an (British?) merchant ship in 1937. There is an new book about the AS/88 published in Spain this year. If you are interested I look for the authors, title etc.

Hallo Hans - Thank you for taking the trouble to reply. Yes I would be interested in the book which you mentioned and, if it is not too much trouble, have the deatils. It would appear, from what information I have collated so far a number of ships were sunk/damaged by Italian aircraft also.

Regards
David

P.S you may care to take a look at my website
