A look at some of the latest publications received for review

BOOKRE VI EWS

Focke Wulf Fw 200

The Condor at War 1939-45

Author: Chris Goss

Publisher: Classic

ISBN: 978 19065 375 48

Format: Hardback, 288 pages

It’s a huge pleasure to see further volumes in this Classic series coming out under the auspices of Crecy. Reference books don’t come much better than this in terms of presentation, and the content is everything one would expect from an author of this reputation.

As the title suggests the book focuses on the aircraft’s wartime service so there is little discussion of its origins or civilian service. The book takes up the story in 1939 with the gradual start of the aircraft’s military career then charts its combat career up until the end of the conflict through five comprehensively illustrated chapters. This is followed by a section on its role as Hitler’s personal transport before a colour section offers four pages of profile artwork followed by scale drawings by Arthur Bentley.

The last forty pages include a number of detailed appendices covering unit commanders, decorations, aircraft losses and more, while the whole thing is topped off with a comprehensive index.

Lavishly illustrated throughout this is an essential book for anyone wishing to understand the aircraft’s role and is recommended both for a modeller’s reference and for general reading on the subject.
