The aircraft used in the squadron were the Junkers Ju 52/2m, D-2600, the Focke-Qulf FW200 Condor and the Junkers Ju 290, a true "flying fortress". Sweeting discusses the wartime history of these types of aircraft beyond their service in Hitler's squadron, including their full combat role. Other topics in the book include an explanation of complex German aircraft numbering systems and designations, German civilian and military pilot licensing, a secret wartime plan to link Germany and Japan by a secure air corridor, and facts about Hitler's hidden headquarters behind the front in Russia.
