Select Bibliography on the Spanish Air War

Compiler's Note: All of the books and documents, with some exceptions, were originally used to provide research information and documentation for the preparation of a study of aircraft losses during the Spanish Civil War. This study was begun in 1987 and completed in 1991, but was not published.
Other relevant documentation on the air war is not listed because it was not available for use and not included in the original bibliography, though some may have been mentioned in the text of the study. Nevertheless, the bibliography should be of some value to researchers of the Spanish air war, and it has been enhanced by the inclusion of more recent books and magazine articles not included in the original document.

* Baker, David. ADOLF GALLAND - The Authorized Biography. London: Windrow & Greene, 1996. One and one half chapters devoted to Galland's stay in Spain with 3./J88, flying the He51 on ground attack missions.
* Bender, Roger James. LEGION CONDOR: Uniforms, Organization and History. San Jose, CA: R. James Bender Publishing, 1992. Useful for descriptions of organization, uniforms and accoutrements of LC; nothing new on aircraft, which have been described more accurately and in better detail in other publications. Many new and different photos.
* Beumelburg, Werner. KAMPF UM SPANIEN: Die Geschichte der Legion Condor. Oldenburg: Gerhard Stalling Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1939. Nazi propaganda, but containing some useful information.
* Bley, Wulf. DAS BUCH DER SPANIENFLIEGER. Leipzig: von Hase & Koehler Verlag, 1938. Interesting chapters written by the participants; propaganda but basically factual in most cases.

* Bridgeman, Brian. THE FLYERS. Upton upon Severn, UK: Self-published, in cooperation with The Self Publishing Association, 1989. Interesting and well-written account of mercenary pilots, mostly British.
* Cortada, James, Editor. HISTORICAL DICTIONARY OF THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR, 1936-1939. Westport, CT: Greenwood Press, 1982. Many valuable references, but despite some appropriate entries, not aviation oriented.
* Coverdale, John. ITALIAN INTERVENTION IN THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR. Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1975. Good for facts and figures, but sparse coverage of the air war.
* Constable, Trevor J. and Raymond F. Toliver. HORRIDO! Fighter Aces of the Luftwaffe. New York: The Macmillan Co., 1968. Useful for biographies of some Geman pilots who served in Spain, but mostly WWII career information.
* ______. FIGHTER ACES OF THE LUFTWAFFE. Atglen, PA: Schiffer Publishing Ltd., 1996. Revised and somewhat updated edition of HORRIDO!, with many additional photographs.
* Cross, Roy and Gerald Scarborough. MESSERSCHMITT BF109, VERSIONS B-E: Classic Aircraft No. 2, Their History and How to Model Them. London: Patrick Stephens Ltd., 1972. Contains brief history of the Bf109 in Spain, with some errors. Includes tone illustrations showing camouflage and markings. Excellent and authoritative technical description of the aircraft itself, aided by Hans Ebert, archivist of the present day MBB GmbH organization.
* DEUTSCHE KAMPFEN IN SPANIEN, Herausgegeben von der Legion Condor. Berlin: Wilhelm Limpert Verlag, 1939. Nazi propaganda piece, but containing some useful facts
* de Wet, Oloff. THE PATROL IS ENDED. New York: Doubleday, Doran and Co. Inc., 1938. (First published in England as THE CARDBOARD CRUCIFIX.) Semi-fictional account of de Wet's tour in Spain. Not a very good source of hard data.
* Drum, Karl (General der Flieger a.D.). THE GERMAN AIR FORCE IN THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR: USAF Historical Study 150. Newark, DE: Air Enterprise Publications, 1987 (and others). Never officially published by the air force, this study is nevertheless of considerable value, although based upon meager records and sometimes faulty memories.
* Edwards, John Carver. AIRMEN WITHOUT PORTFOLIO: US Mercenaries in Civil War Spain. Westport, CT: Praeger Publishers, 1997. A very expensive 150 pages! Depends heavily on Tinker's book, SOME STILL LIVE, but covers other legitimate participants fairly well. Ignores the fakes and adventurers, though they were often more interesting than the others. Allen Herr's article in the Journal of the AAHS, Fall 1977 issue on the same subject, is more comprehensive and better reading!
* Elstob, Peter. LA LEGION CONDOR: España 1936-39. Madrid: Editorial San Martin, 1973. (Spanish edition of Ballantine Books US edition.) Often referenced as a legitimate source in other publications, it is filled with errors. Elstob claimed to have taken part in the air war, but was in Spain only briefly and never flew a mission.
* Emiliani, Angelo. ITALIANI NELL' AVIAZIONE REPUBBLICANA SPAGNOLA. Florence: Edizioni Aeronautiche Italiani S.r.l., 1981. Unique and probably final coverage of the subject.
* Emiliani, Angelo and Guiseppe Ghergo. NEI CIELI DI SPAGNA. Milan: Giorgio Apostolo Editore, 1986. Excellent photo coverage, concentrating on the Italian participation, for the most part.
* ______. WINGS OVER SPAIN: History and Images of the Civi War 1936-39. Milan: Giorgio Apostolo Editore, 1997. Graphically superior volume, with excellent English text. Many lengthy and informative photo captions, plus color profiles. Concentrates mainly on Italian participation. Useful appendices, aces list, etc.
* Emiliani, Angelo, Guiseppe Ghergo and Achille Vigna. SPAGNA 1936-1939: L'Aviazione Legionaria. Milan: Intergest, 1976. Contains better quality photo reproduction than the Spanish edition, plus more photos, including more of German aircraft. Different information in appendices than Spanish edition.
* ______. LA AVIACION LEGIONARIA: España 1936-39. Madrid: Editorial San Martin, 1974. Spanish language edition of the above title, but contains loss data and different totals of Italian aircraft sent to Spain.
* Fleuret, Alain. LUFTWAFFE CAMOUFLAGE 1934-1940. Melbourne: Kookaburra Technical Publications, 1981. One useful chapter on Spain, with photos. Uses Ries and Ring's data for number of foreign aircraft in Spain, especially Bf109s. Aside from some photos, nothing new or original.
* Galland, Adolf. LES PREMIERS ET LES DERNIERS. Paris: Yves Michelet Editeur, 1985. Revised and updated French edition of Galland's classic, THE FIRST AND THE LAST. The original English edition barely mentions the Spanish Civil War.
Green, William. WARPLANES OF THE THIRD REICH. Garden City: Doubleday & Co. Inc., 1970. Aging classic on German aircraft; still valuable and helpful.
* ______. AUGSBURG EAGLE: The Messerschmitt Bf109. Bourne End, UK: Aston Publications Ltd., 1987. Some questionable information on Spanish war 109s, but generally accurate coverage.
* Guerrero, Juan Antonio. I-15 CHATO. Barcelona: L. Carbonell Editor, 1988. Small booklet with some new photos, but basically standard information on the I-15 and I-152. Color profiles by John Weal, which have previously appeared in other publications.
* Hallion, Richard P. STRIKE FROM THE SKY: The History of Battlefield Air Attack 1911-1945. Washington, DC: Smithsonian Institution Press, 1989. Excellent chapter on ground assault operations and tactics during the SCW, including analysis of lessons learned and not learned.
* Haycraft, James B. MESSERSCHMITTS OVER SPAIN - Military Journal Special No. 1. Bennington, VT: International Graphics Corp. 1979. General description of the introduction of the Bf109 into Spain and its operational experience. Tone illustrations of color schemes and personal markings. Much of the content now outdated.
* Herrera Alonso, Emilio. ENTRE EL ANIL Y EL COBALTO: Los Hydroaviones en le Guerra de España. Madrid: Instituto de Historia y Cultura Aeronautica, 1987. Concentrates on the use of seaplanes in the war and provides extensive chronology of operations and events.
* Hitchcock, Thomas H. MESSERSCHMITT O-NINE GALLERY. Acton, MA: Monogram Aviation Publications, 1973. Discusses introduction and use of the 109 in Spain, including experimental aircraft, with photos of representative types. Some information now outdated.
* Howson, Gerald. AIRCRAFT OF THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR 1936-1939. Washington, DC: Smithsonian Institution Press, 1990. Excellent and thorough coverage of just about every aircraft that saw service in Spain on both sides, with operational data and photographs, plus many appendices. Unlikely to be surpassed for many years, if ever!
* ______. ARMS FOR SPAIN: The Untold Story of the Spanish Civil War. London: John Murray (Publishers) Ltd., 1998. Tells for the first time how Republican Spain's national treasure was dissipated and stolen by arms dealers, racketeers and political wheeler-dealers, who contrived to supply junk arms and aircraft. Howson takes advantage of newly released Russian documentation to demonstrate how the Soviet Union supplied far less aid than previously thought.
* EL INFORME DEL PRESIDENTE AGUIRRE AL GOBIERNO DE LA REPUBLICA. Bilbao: Editorial La Gran Enciclopedia Vasca, 1978. (Aviation related extracts only, via Tom Sarbaugh). Some useful information on the air war in the north.
* Jimenez Arenas, Jose Luis. CADENAS DEL AIRE. Madrid: Editorial San Martin, 1973. Personal account of a ground assault pilot who flew many missions.
* Kopenhagen, Wilfried. LEXICON SOWJETLUFTFAHRT. Berlin: Transpress VEB Verlag für Verkehrswesen, 1986. Biographies of prominent Soviet aviation personalities, some of whom served in Spain.
* Kropp, Albert. SO KAMPFEN DEUTSCHE SOLDATEN: Von Rittern des Goldenen Brillanten Spanienkreuzes. Berlin: Wilhelm Limpert Verlag, 1939. Nazi propaganda piece on holders of the Spanish Cross in Gold with Diamonds. Propaganda aside, contains useful information.
* Larios, José. COMBAT OVER SPAIN: Memoirs of a Nationalist Fighter Pilot. New York: Macmillan, 1966. Well written, lucid and interesting account, with valuable information. Originally written in English by Larios (Marquis of Larios, Duke of Lerma), who was educated in England; not a translation.
* Laureau, Patrick. L'AVIATION REPUBLICAINE ESPAGNOLE (Docavia No. 8). Paris: Editions Lariviere, 1978. Ground-breaking volume on the Spanish air war; still in demand and valuable, despite many errors.
* Laureau, Patrick, with Santiago Capillas and Enrique Pereira. LA AVIACION REPUBLICANA ESPANOLA 1936-1939. N.d.: Self-published (Two volumes: Vol. 1, 1980 and Vol. 2, 1982) Basically, a Spanish language version of the above French title, but with additional photos and containing some strange errors and omissions. A planned third volume was never published.
* Laureau, Patrick, with José Fernandez. LA LEGION CONDOR. Collection Histoire de L'Aviation No. 7. Outreau: Editions Lela Presse 1999. Excellent coverage of the Legion Condor in text (French) and photos, many published for the first time. All aspects of the LC covered, including the army, flak units and the Kriegsmarine. Many color illustrations and profiles with accurate color and marking schemes, but no index or source references.
* Malizia, Nicola. ALI NELLA TRAGEDIA DI SPAGNA (1936-1939). Modena: Mucchi Editore, 1986. Straightforward account of the airwar, stressing the Italian viewpoint. Unremarkable photos.
* Maluquer Wahl, Juan J. LA AVIACION DE CATALUNA EN LOS PRIMEROS MESES DE LA GUERRA CIVIL. Madrid: Editorial San Martin, 1980. Personal memoir of the early days of the war in Catalonia.
* Mason, Herbert Molloy, Jr. THE RISE OF THE LUFTWAFFE 1918-1940. New York: The Dial Press, 1973. Standard account of the Spanish air war included among other chapters, with no surprises or unique insights.
* Miranda, Justo and Paula Mercado. AVIACION MUNDIAL EN ESPANA (Guerra Civil) 1936-1939: Aviones Americanos y Rusos. Madrid: Silex Ediciones, 1985.
* ______. WORLD AVIATION IN SPAIN (The Civil War) 1936-1939: American and Soviet Airplanes. Madrid: Silex Ediciones, 1988. English language edition of the above title. First of a projected seven volume series to be devoted to the aircraft used in Spain. Contains a wealth of technical, tactical and historical information, but is lacking in source references. Excellent and profuse illustrations; not too many photographs.
* ______. AVIONES EN LA GUERRA CIVIL ESPANOLA 1936/1939 - Ingleses - Checos - Polacos. Madrid: Aldaba Ediciones, 1990. Second volume in the planned series, with all the positive attributes of the first. At this time, a third volume has yet to be published and the series seems to be stalled, for one reason or another.
* Mitcham, Samuel W. Jr. MEN OF THE LUFTWAFFE. Novato, CA: Presidio Press, 1988. One chapter on the SCW, summarizing the part the Luftwaffe played in that conflict.
* Mombeek, Eric with J. Richard Smith and Eddie J. Creek. LUFTWAFFE COLOURS, VOL. ONE, SERIES 2: Jagdwaffe - The Spanish Civil War. Crowborough, UK: Classic Publications, 1999.
Superior graphics, with minimal text, plus many contemporary anecdotal accounts from participants. Many photos of LC fighter aircraft; most seen before in a variety of other publications. Superb artwork, but some questionable colors and color schemes. For example, Gotthard Handrick's Bf109 6-56 (and other 109s) shown in what appears to be a dark green (RLM 68), instead of light grey fuselage color.
* Nowarra, Heinz J. DIE JU52: FLUGZEUG UND LEGENDE. Stuttgart: Motorbuch Verlag, 1986. Brief information on the "Tante Ju" and its Spanish service.
* ______. ME109: A FAMOUS GERMAN FIGHTER. Letchworth, UK: Harleyford Publications, Ltd., 1966. Includes a general account of the 109 in Spain, but contains many errors and omissions common to a 30 year-old book.
* Obermaier, Ernst. DIE RITTERKREUZTRAGER DER LUFTWAFFE 1939-1945, Band I, Jagdflieger (Revised Edition, with German text only). Mainz: Verlag Dieter Hoffmann, 1989. Short biographies, with photos, of Luftwaffe fighter pilots who were awarded the Knight's Cross in the various grades; includes many who served in Spain.
* ______. DIE RITTERKREUZTRAGER DER LUFTWAFFE 1939-1945, Band II, Stuka und Schlachtflieger (Revised Edition, with German text only). Mainz: Verlag Dieter Hoffmann, 1989. These two volumes are "must have" references for any air war historian!
* Obermaier, Ernst and Werner Held. JAGDFLIEGER
OBERST WERNER MOLDERS. Stuttgart: Motorbuch Verlag, 1982. Mostly pictorial history of Mölders' career, with a few photos in Spain.
* Pedriali, Ferdinando. GUERRA DI SPAGNA E AVIAZIONE ITALIANA. Edizione Riveduta e Ampliata. Rome: Nuovo Studio Tecna, 1992. Official history of Italy's air operations in the SCW. Excellent selection of photographs and many valuable appendices.
* Proctor, Raymond L. HITLER'S LUFTWAFFE IN THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR. Westport, CT: Greenwood Press, 1983. Comprehensive volume on the Geman role in the war, but despite access to records and interviews with some surviving participants, still contains errors - primarily dates. Suffers somewhat from dry writing style.
* Radinger, Willy and Walter Schick. MESSERSCHMITT ME109: Alle Varianten - von Bf (Me) 109A bis 109E. Oberhaching: Aviatic Verlag, 1977. New information on the Bf109 "versuchs" aircraft sent to Spain for evaluation, plus some new photos. English language edition also available, published by Schiffer Publishing Ltd. in the US.
* Rello, Salvador. LA AVIACION EN LA GUERRA DE ESPANA (4 volumes). Madrid: Editorial San Martin, 1969-1972. An early, admirable but failed attempt to document all the major (and some minor) aircraft used in Spain. Tiny, card-cover books, with small photos, limit the amount of useful information contained. Superseded by Howson's and the Miranda's works.
* Ries, Karl and Hans Ring. LEGION CONDOR: Ein Illustrierte Dokumentation. Mainz: Verlag Dieter Hoffmann, 1980. Ground-breaking volume on the subject, with new information and photos not previously published. See below.
* ______. LEGION CONDOR: A History of the Luftwaffe in the Spanish Civil War 1936-1939. Translated by David Johnston. West Chester, PA: Schiffer Publishing Ltd., 1992. English language edition of the above, with identical page layout and appearance, but with superior photo reproduction. Best coverage of the Legion Condor to date, both text and photographs, with much useful information in the text and the many appendices.
* Salas Larrazabal, Jesus. AIR WAR OVER SPAIN. London: Ian Allen, 1974. An attempt to provide a complete account of the Spanish air war, but concentrates mostly on fighter operations and contains much confusing text describing ground campaigns. Tends to stress the Nationalist viewpoint and suffers somewhat from a mediocre English translation. A valuable reference, nevertheless.
* ______. LA GUERRA DE ESPANA DESDE EL AIRE. Barcelona: Ariel, 1972. (Original Spanish language edition of "Air War Over Spain") Different information in the appendices from the English edition.
* ______. DAS FLUGZEUG IN SPANISCHEN BURGERKRIEG. Stuttgart: Motorbuch Verlag, 1973. German language edition of "Air War Over Spain," with no appendices at all!
* ______. GUERRA AEREA 1936/39, TOME I: La Batalla Aérea por Madrid. Madrid: Instituto de Historia y Cultura Aeronauticas, 1998. Not just a greatly expanded and revised edition of the author's 1972 work, described above, but an entirely new series on the air war, containing an enormous quantity of new information that has come to light over the years. Tome I alone, contains 81 appendices and index, in addition to the main text.
* ______. GUERRA AEREA 1936/39, TOME II: La Campaña del Norte. Madrid: Instituto de Historia y Cultura Aeronauticas, 1998. More of the same, with hundreds of pages of text and 37 appendices, plus index. This volume carries the air war through 1937. Both volumes well illustrated with photographs, many previously unpublished. Additional volumes should be forthcoming.
* Sanchis, Miguel. ALAS ROJAS SOBRE ESPANA. Madrid, 1956. Dated, but frequently useful source of information on Soviet aircraft in Spain. One of the first studies on the subject.
* Shores, Christopher. SPANISH CIVIL WAR AIR FORCES. New York: Sky Books Press, Ltd., 1977. Little more than an enlarged brochure, with basically superficial coverage and of little historical value, but used frequently as a reference in other more serious publications, no doubt based upon Shore's reputation.
* Sirvent Cerillo, Luis. ESPANA "LA GUERRA AEREA" Los Combates de un Piloto de Caza de la Republica (1936-1939). Madrid: Self-published, 1995. Personal memoir by a former pilot and participant.
* Steer, George L. THE TREE OF GERNIKA: A Field Study of Modern War. London: Hodder & Stoughton Ltd., 1938. Aviation references only, via Tom Sarbaugh.
* Tarazona, Francisco. YO FUI PILOTO DE CAZA ROJO. Madrid: Editorial San Martin, 1974. One of the first autobiographical accounts to emerge from the war.
* Thomas, Hugh. THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR (Revised and Enlarged Edition). New York: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1977. Surprisingly detailed and accurate aviation coverage for an overall history of the war. Still a vital reference!
* Thomas, Gordon and Max Morgan Witts. GUERNICA: The Crucible of World War II. New York: Stein & Day Publishers, 1975. Interesting account, but flawed and undependable as a legitimate historical account.
* von Forell, Fritz. MOLDERS UND SEINE MANNER. Graz: Steirische Verlagsanstalt, 1941. Chapter on Mölders Spanish service essentially correct, despite wartime origin of the book. Covers his subsequent career, but ends before his accidental death.
* ______. WERNER MOLDERS - Flug zur Sonne: Die Geschichte des grossen Jagdfliegers. Leoni am Starnberger See: Druffel Verlag, 1976. By the same author as the above volume, but basically unchanged. Carries Mölders' story up to his death in November, 1941 and beyond.
* von Stackelberg, Karl-Georg. LEGION CONDOR: Deutsche Freiwillige in Spanien. Berlin: Verlag der Heimbucherei, 1939. Pure propaganda!
