This book covers the Spanish Civil War, fought from 1936 to 1939 between leftist loyalists and right-wing rebels. Often called the dress rehearsal for WWII, the Spanish Civil War saw both sides equipped with aircraft and other weapons by future belligerents in the Second World War. Some of these aircraft were state of the art (some, not so much), such as the German Ju87 dive-bomber provided to the rebels and the I-16 fighter sent to the loyalists by the USSR. This book discusses the state of aviation prior to the civil war and how the division effected the loyalties of air units. The book is lavishly illustrated with photographs and artwork and includes information on notable airmen.

About Us

J.J. Fedorowicz Publishing went into business in 1983 as Military Book Distributor, selling other companies’ books through the mail. Many of those books were in German, and so during the next few years a number of individuals commented on how it would be nice to see them in English. I investigated the costs and possibilities, and the first book was printed; 400 copies of a 40-page biography on Paul Hausser (how many of you own that one?). This was followed by European Volunteers, the first hard cover and first translation. And here we are now, almost 100 books later, and many more to go.

From the first day, the company’s objective was to provide translations of the very best German-language books covering the German ground forces in WW II and to publish them in a format that would last many years (hard cover, on acid-free paper, with laminated covers). It appears that we have been fairly successful.

Started as a one-man operation by John Fedorowicz, the company grew steadily until more help was needed. Over time, 3 partners came on board and we added Tiger Hobbies as a local outlet for modelers and book buyers. Eventually, as times and economic circumstances demanded, the company has returned to the original owner. However, Sharron, who came on board in 2002 as office manager, has stayed to keep me in line and on target. Ken helps with Tiger Hobbies. So here we are, John, Sharron and Ken - when you call you will get one of us.

Defying the hard economic situation, we plan to publish many more excellent books in the future and to serve your reading and modeling needs for many more years.
