Osprey Elite 131 : The Condor Legion : German Troops in the Spanish Civil War

The Condor Legion was the expeditionary force of soldiers and airmen sent by Hitler to aid Franco's Nationalists during the Spanish Civil War. The Germans used the war as an opportunity to develop equipment and tactics, and their force included not only instructors, but also combat units of artillery, tanks and aircraft. These units tested guns, tanks and planes and perfected techniques which were used in the 1940 Blitzkrieg. Many of officers prominent in the early campaigns of World War II won their first successes in Spain. This book details the Condor Legion and its unique uniforms and insignia. Text by Carlos Caballero Jurado with illustrations by Ramiro Bujeiro.
