He might mean the Juan-Carlos Salgado one, which Classic published in 2008 as No. 16 in the series.

I actually did mean Classic 16, which included air-line and pre-war stuff as well as a little more about what differentiated one variant from another.
I was a tiny bit surprised that neither volume had a complete production list. With less than 300 built, this seems like it would be possible?

Re: Focke Wulf Fw 200: The Condor at War

The book was written as 'in combat' as opposed to design, development & manufacture & in combat The losses give a good indication of any production list. The Do 17 book will include more on design & development but don't expect a production list! JC's book was an amalgamation of his 2 booklets on the ac which had been written in Spanish, translated & expanded slightly.

Do you intend that Do-17 includes the Do-217?

No-the book would be massive. Likewise the Do 215 as Mikael has just done this
