By Karl Ries

Изображения: черно-белые фото, цветные рисункиEine illustrierte DokumentationVierzig Jahre geheimnisvolles Schweigen sind genug!Nach so langer Zeit hat der historisch Interessierte ein Recht darauf, zu erfahren, wie die Aufgabenstellung des deutschen Truppenkontingentes im Spanischen B#252;rgerkrieg lautete, wie die Legion Condor diesen Aufgaben gerecht wurde, welche Erfolge sie erzielte und wieviele Opfer sie dabei bringen mu#223;te.Infolge der strengen Geheimhaltung, durch die vor 1945 kaum Einzelheiten #252;ber die deutsche Beteiligung bei diesem Unternehmen an die #214;ffentlichkeit gelangten und die gegen Kriegsende vernichteten und verlorengegangenen Dokumente, mu#223;ten alle bisherigen publizistischen Versuche, die damaligen Ereignisse zu schildern, St#252;ckwerk bleiben; ein Neuaufgu#223; #228;lterer Arbeiten folgte dem anderen. Die Umst#228;nde, die zum Spanischen B#252;rgerkrieg f#252;hrten, wurden endlos analysiert, jedoch #252;ber die Legion Condor selbst warfare kaum etwas in Erfahrung zu bringen.Es blieb deshalb zwei weltweit bekannten Historikern und ausgezeichneten Kennern der Luftwaffe - Insider w#252;rde guy heute dazu sagen - vorbehalten, mit dieser Dokumentation eine schmerzlich empfundene L#252;cke in der Luftwaffen-Literatur auszuf#252;llen. was once das Buch an detaillierten Berichten, an Einsatzschilderungen, an unbekanntem Bildmaterial dem Leser bietet, d#252;rfte in dieser shape einmalig sein!Diese erstaunliche Retrospektive conflict nur durch jahrelange Recherchierarbeit und enger Kontaktnahme mit den damaligen Legion#228;ren oder ihren Angeh#246;rigen m#246;glich, die dankenswerterweise ihre Mitarbeit nicht versagten. So findet sich im Anhang neben der erstmals ver#246;ffentlichten, bis heute unbekannt gebliebenen Verlustliste, auch die offizielle Abschu#223;-Statistik der Jagdgruppe 88 , die Offiziersstellenbesetzung und eine komplette #220;bersicht der nach Spanien gelieferten deutsche Flugzeuge. Im Wortlaut wiedergegebene Tagebuchaufzeichnungen bekannter Flieger zeigen die Diskrepanz zwischen dem wahren Geschehen und den sp#228;rlichen Ver#246;ffentlichungen der damaligen Propagandamaschinerie, der mangels anderer Informationsquellen Glauben geschenkt werden mu#223;te.Das Buch ist mehr als eine Dokumentation, es setzt ein eindringliches Warnzeichen zu aktuellen Ereignissen in Vorderasien, die in ihrer unkalkulierbaren Sequenz leicht Legionen, gleich welcher Couleur, geb#228;ren k#246;nnten!
