I've been playing back through FlatSpinMan's great Legion Condor campaign and dug this great book out of my closet to go along with it,
http://isbn.abebooks.com/bwk/95/88/0887403395.jpg
The Legion Condor - History of the Luftwaffe in Spain 1936-39 (http://www.abebooks.com/9780887403392/Legion-Condor-History-Luftwaffe-Spanish-0887403395/plp)

"Many Luftwaffe pilots received combat training in Spain; Werner Molders and Adolf Galland first earned their wings as members of the Legion Condor. Renowned Luftwaffe experts Karl Ries and Hans Ring have brought together over 480 photographs, including aerial reconnaissance photos, detailed unit insignia, and action shots. The history of the Legion Condor is discussed in great detail, including the many personalities, thorough battle analysis, and technical aspects of the weaponry. The result is a superb historical study of the early Luftwaffe. "

For any of you history buffs out there I cannot recommend this book enough - it is a must have.

This is just the sort of thing I was looking for, thanks. And all those photographs! A must have it seems.

If you can try to get all books with Hans Ring as author or co-author, I have about 14 so far http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
