I am working about Legion Condor and i want to know if there are more information, sources or references about the composition or creation of the original song "Lied der Legion Condor". I understand that the song was recorded and published in 1939, but i assume it was compounded before. My question is: is it posible that the soldiers of the A/88 sang this song in september 1937 in the battle of Asturias? It could exist some sources that could corroborate or overrade this theory? Thank you very much. Your post have helped me a lot.
Yes, it's possible that it was created before 1939. However, all currently known sources mention only 1939, when the song was incorporated into the Bögelsack's march, recorded and published. No further info on the creation of the song, unfortunately.
Do share the reason for suspecting that it might have been composed before 1939 (which I find very plausible as well).
If needed, some additional info on the creation of the Bombenflieger song/march can be found here viewtopic.php?f=81&t=207515&start=15
