Re: Focke Wulf Fw 200: The Condor at War

Thanks Justin. I try my best but no doubt new information will come out

Alfred: Amazon has been slow I have been told but why, I cannot say

Re: Focke Wulf Fw 200: The Condor at War

Amazon US alternates between claiming it is in stock and claiming it has not been released. Huh???

Chris:

My compliments on your Fw 200 effort. I have just received it and have given it cursory glance, spending more time later on it. Looks like lots of photos that appear new to me. Looking forward to studying the color profiles too.

One of the things that I have found of interest as part of my initial impression is the magnitude of Condar losses. Much more than I ever envisioned.

Again....well done!

Re: Focke Wulf Fw 200: The Condor at War

Thanks Mark-most kind. It was hard work but as far as I am aware, the feedback has been that I have done the Condor some kind of justice. Next major book will be 'Knights of the Battle of Britain' due out early this year which are the bios of all 124 operational aircrew who received the RK or EL 6 April-31 Dec 40. Then, as a result of the Condor book, there will be "Dornier Do 17: The Flying Pencil at War 1939-45"......

Great to hear! I finished the Condor book last week and enjoyed it thoroughly. A Do 17 book is long over due and with you writing it, I'm sure it will be excellent. I'd love to see the BV 138 get the Classic treatment. Heck I'd even settle for the He 115 or Ar 196. Forlorn hope I know but since the series started with the HS 129 I can dream, can't I?

Keep up the great work and thanks!

Re: Focke Wulf Fw 200: The Condor at War

Indeed the BV 138 would deserve a proper big book. However, I would prefer it to be a "Development, Testing, Production" style book (e.g. like Dietmar Herrman's Fw 190 books or Vernaleken's Ju 388 book), not an operational chronicle. After all, Chris's Condor book did not tell the reader such basics as stalling speeds and characteristics.

Re: Focke Wulf Fw 200: The Condor at War

Funny you should mention Ar 196 & BV 138.... Fw 200 was written as an "in combat" which is my forte. Do 17 will be different.

Re: Focke Wulf Fw 200: The Condor at War

I found it interesting that the new Do-335 book has the same number as the old one, and is clearly intended as a replacement. Your new Condor book however, has its own new number, and the two Condor books, though written years apart by different authors, in some ways function as a two-volume set. Great book by the way. I look forward to the Do-17 book, and I certainly would love Classics on Bv-138 and/or Ar-196.

Re: Focke Wulf Fw 200: The Condor at War

Thanks for your kind comments. Presume by the other Condor book, you are talking about the Jerry Scutts book? Problem with this is it was published posthumously & it was incomplete & error strewn. I was asked if I would rewrite it but the work involved would have been too great. Hence my new book.
