Got this as an early birthday present (April 24th) signed by a German 22nd Panzer Division crew member, Obergefreiter Henry Metelmann, who was in Operation Barbarossa, Crimean Winter 1941, Mannestein's 11th Army early Spring 1942, push to the River V and approach to Stalingrad. He returned to his unit for the Battle of Stalingrad before being wounded again and walked for days before being captured. He escaped and in early 1945 was sent to join a Panzer unit in the West defending the Rhine from the advancing US Army under General Patton.

Nice print and signed by quite a celebrity. I've seen Mr. Metelmann on several TV documentaries. Always thought his name was perfect for a Panzer trooper.

Oh, and by the way....Happy Birthday. (Pretty close to the "Fuhrer's" birthday isn't it?)

That would be today...10 days before another of Adolf's Anniversaries.

Well Happy Birthday officially. And I hope I didn't dim your day by mentioning that little Austrian Corporal.

Well, I knew it was somebody's birthday today. You'll have to excuse me for being so dense. It's Friday and my mind is always screwed up from work by Friday.

Silly me...I thought you might have been referring to the Blitz Sale of TOAW III, where you can buy that magnificent title for 40% off. The sale ends in less than 24 hours. Get yours before they go back up in price!
