        Sir Winston Churchill famously called it: "The scourge of the Atlantic". No more than Kondors were ever built and at most times only eight or 10 of these were ever operational. Indeed there were so few in service that when a new one was rolled out at the factory an aircrew from KG40 would go to the factory to collect it rather than risk it. Winston Churchill called the Fw the "Scourge of the Atlantic" during the Battle of the Atlantic due to its contribution to the heavy Allied shipping losses. From mid, Condor crews were instructed to stop attacking shipping and avoid all combat in order to preserve numbers.

      As the war in the Atlantic heated up in , an ad hoc Luftwaffe Kampfgeschwader was created. Flying in a converted airliner, the Fw , the group became the scourge of the Atlantic. Faced with mounting losses, the British responded with improved anti-aircraft guns, fighter aircraft based on merchant ships, and escort carriers.   Bennett is deeply engaged in the unknowability of other people and the scourge of colorism. The scene in which Stella adopts her white persona is a tour de force of doubling and confusion. It calls up Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye, the book's year-old antecedent. Bennett's novel plays with its characters' nagging feelings of being.
