In mid-December of 1989, two American journalists arrive in Panama, just three days before U.S. President George Bush ordered a massive American invasion of Panama.During their stay in a secret hideaway known as the Kondor Club, the two journalistsMoreIn mid-December of 1989, two American journalists arrive in Panama, just three days before U.S. President George Bush ordered a massive American invasion of Panama.During their stay in a secret hideaway known as the Kondor Club, the two journalists interview several old German flyers who have asked them to write a book about their secret mission to Panama 48 years before.This mission, code named Operation Dove, was conceived by none other than Field Marshal Hermann Goering, who had long dreamed of seizing the Panama Canal in the event of war between Germany and the United States.Just three days after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, four huge Luftwaffe flying boats called the Kondor K-II took off from a secret base in Bavaria. The flying boats were almost as large as the famous American Spruce Goose and each carried 300 German paratrooper commandos known as the Brandenburgers. Their destination: the Panama Locks.Aeronautical engineers, World War II history buffs, and most anyone who likes adventure stories should be fascinated by the mission maps and the detailed drawings of the huge secret Kondor K-II flying boats-all drawn by the author.
