First seen as an elegant airliner that flew non-stop from Berlin to New York, the Condor (sometimes known as Kondor) was developed into an effective maritime strike aircraft. Nicknamed 'Scourge of the Atlantic' it inflicted a heavy toll on allied shipping. Also used as transport by Himmler, Doenitz and Hitler and on the Eastern Front in the Stalingrad airlift, it was a remarkable aircraft. More than 250 photographs plus colour artwork show the Condor in its many military and civilian guises. Unlike allied warbirds, no-one preserved a Condor and none survive.
