Excellent. Total emphasis on the Bf 109, with many photos. Plus a copy of a four page original document listing *all* the Legion Condor victories in the SCW including locations. This was obtained from the estate of a Legion Condor veteran. It has differences from the Ring-Ries volume on the SCW.

Enjoy!

Frank.

An enjoyable read. Recommended to anyone interested in the early Bf 109 and its service with the Legion Condor.

Hello,

Surprisingly, the pilot on the left in the photograph on the double-page spread on pp.38-9, is referred to as, "another pilot"! Surely this is Heinrich "Hein" Bruecker".

Just received my copy. A superb, thoroughly researched and illustrated book, with many previously unpublished photos.

A well structured work too, easy to follow. Still reading it through. so I may make some further observations at later date, but from what I have read thus far the book will be a welcome addition to library of any enthusiast interested in the Legion Condor's deployment in the Spanish Civil War.

There is one thing that caught my eye though - there appears to be no mention of, in the absence of better word, the anomaly of having Bf 109 D-1 aircraft (i.e., coded 6-95, 6-96, 6-97, and possibly even 6-98) in the batch of the Bf 109 E aircraft (6-87 to 6-130). At least one of these (i.e., 6-95) is a known exception for I believe a decade.


Regards,
Sinisa

Excellent read! Very interesting! Very good research work based on pictures. I've really enjoyed reading about the A version.

It was good but this author is no Christopher Shoes, I will expect any military book about Spanish Civil war published in 2019 ought to include both side's view, just like how Christopher Shores writes his books
