FOCKE-WULF FW 190 "LONG NOSE"

by Dietmar Hermann




An illustrated history of the FW 190D Series covering the development of those variants of the Fw 190 powered by inline engines. Production of the Fw 190C, D and the Ta 153 was delayed by the German air ministry, and not until 1944 did the Fw 190D-9, powered by the Jumo 213A, enter production. It was an immediate success and quickly entered Luftwaffe service with more than 1,700 examples being completed by the end of the war. The D-9 gave rise to a number of improved variants with the more powerful Jumo 213F engine and heavier armament, however only a handful of the D-11 and D-13 versions were completed.

THE MAKING OF A NAZI HERO

by Daniel Siemens

The Murder and Myth of Horst Wessel. On 14th January 1930, the young member of the SA was shot in Berlin. Although the crime was never solved, the murder was most likely committed by a group of communists. Joseph Goebbels, whose attention had already been drawn to Wessel as a possible future Nazi leader, recognized the propaganda potential of 'a young martyr for the Third Reich' as he wrote in his diary on 23 February 1930. Two months later, thousands of people lined the streets for Wessel's funeral parade and Goebbels delivered a eulogy. In the years that followed Horst Wessel became the hero of the Nazi movement. His elaborate memorial quickly became a site of pilgrimage and the 'Horst Wessel Song' became the official anthem of the Nazi party.
