The Classic book must be brilliant.

Re: Osprey Fw 200 Combat Units

I'm wondering if you will have much information on the conventional bombing missions flown by Fw 200s during the BoB. A very minor part of the history of the aircraft I know and I've seen it touched on in other books without a lot of detail but given the depth you're going into, have you much on the subject? Looking forward to the publication eagerly!

Re: Osprey Fw 200 Combat Units

The answer is yes. I have written about attacks against land targets at night by I./KG 40 at the end of Aug 40 and then again in November-December 1940. There were around 10 aircraft involved total but the crew names are known for the latter attacks. However, they flew individually at night so talk of massed attacks against land targets in daylight are still wishful thinking!

First draft of the Classic book now finished-83,000 words and initial photo count 650. Both will no doubt go up before it is finalised

Re: Osprey Fw 200 Combat Units

Quick question on the Classic tittle. Just curious why they commissioned a new book with new author on an aircraft with an established place in a longstanding series.
