The Henschel Hs123 was a single-seat biplane dive bomber and close-support attack aircraft flown by the German Luftwaffe during the Spanish Civil War and the early years of World War II. Used also by Spain and China, it was the first combat aircraft flown by the famous ace Adolph Galland. This remarkably effective little warplane was the first dive bomber used by the fledging Luftwaffe, and played a significant role in the campaigns in Poland, France and Russia.

This book describes the development and operation history of the Hs123. It contains: superb colour illustrations of camouflage and markings, rare b&w archive photographs, and scale plans. Essential reading for aviation enthusiasts, historians & scale modellers.
