This book, written by D. Juan Sayós Estivill, is a set of memories of our war, written by a pilot of the fighter aviation of the Republic.
It does not claim to make history or to draw consequences, but only to reflect as faithfully as possible impressions lived impetuously and that, precisely for this reason, can’t have the cold objectivity of a chronicle.
The descriptions in this brief book of memoirs-one more, devoted to the Spanish Civil War-are lively, realistic, and passionate.
"JOSÉ MARÍA CARRERAS DEXEUS, an exceptional Catalan aviator. The only Spanish pilot who flew most types of allied aircraft during World War II, and was later Airline Pilot".
At the beginning of May 2019, the Biography of Pilot José María Carreras Dexeus, a very outstanding aviator, came to light again. He began his enormous aeronautical work in Catalonia, then briefly moved to Canada and the United States and settled in England. As General Salas Larrazábal rightly says in the Prologue: "It is strange that until now there has not been a book dedicated to the famous aviator José María Carreras (JEP), with a very important trajectory in the initiation of aviation in Barcelona, decisive for the knowledge of the performance of the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA), during World War II in the United Kingdom. Its participation in the Berlin airlift and in the first commercial jet flights should also be highlighted.

SPANISH AIR FORCE DURING WORLD WAR II, GERMANY´S HIDDEN ALLY? ISBN 9788366148178
Continuing with the study of the lesser known Air Forces that fought in the skies of Europe during World War II, in this book we want to remember the Spanish Air Force and how it defended the Spanish skies from several Air Forces that took part in the war. Besides we can read about the Blue Squadrons that fought against the Soviet Air Force in the Eastern Front in spite of the Spanish neutrality.
We have written a text that will show us the bravery and courage of these men, in a difficult balance between the Allies and the Axis that allowed to General Franco continue in his position as chief of the Spanish state after the World War 2. We want to compile in a didactic way but without academic intention, the information about this topic from various main sources such as Juan Arráez Cerdá, José Luis González Serrano, Carlos Caballero, Francisco Martínez Canales or Jorge Fernández-Coppel, trying to focus on the Spanish Air Force actions during the world conflict defending the Spanish neutrality and in the Blue Squadrons actions against the USSR.
Finally as is required we use this work to pay tribute to all the members of the Spanish Air Force that fought for their country during the difficult years of World War II.

ISBN 9788366148338 Hispano Aviación HA - 1112 Eduardo Manuel Gil Martinez.
The Messerschmitt Bf 109 was without doubts one of the most important airplanes in the history of aviation and since the beginning its history was linked to Spain. Only a few months since the maiden flight, three prototypes were sent to Spain to be tested during the Spanish Civil War and shortly after Spain bought E and F series. When Spain acquired the manufacturing under license of the Bf 109 G-2 began the history of the Messerschmitt Bf 109s made in Spain, which gave rise to two aircraft such as the HA-1109 and the HA-1112, with several subtypes. These aircraft manufactured in Spain enlarged the Bf 109 life about 20 years since the end of World War 2 because continued in active service until 1965 coexisting with the 2nd and the 3rd generation jet. Fortunately even today some of the HA-1112s fly majestic as worthy descendants of the great aircraft that was and always will be the Messerschmitt Bf 109. In this text we will remember the amazing history of these made in Spain aircraft.

During the battle of Brunete bombers of that type frequently attacked Republican ground troops. They ventured over enemy’s rear without fighter escort and easily escaped fighters trying to intercept them. The new bomber passed well its first combat test. On 3 July the bombers from Majorca bombed Valencia. It was a retaliatory raid ordered by Franco, concerning the previous Republican raids on cities in the Nationalist zone.
