    Thanks, that does look like it.
    How about this one, I can't be sure what this one is. I've reasearched for hours but cannot find one exactly like it. It isn't on any backing and has a safety pin in the back. There isn't any document that correctly matches it either.

    Hey Everyone,

    It will be called:

    Eastern Inferno
    The Journals of a German Panzerjäger on the Eastern Front, 1941–43.


    Special thanks to Jeff Rogers for all his WONDERFUL HELP! And to all you who have helped in this thread - be looking for your name in the "Special thanks" section of the book!

    While I don't have the knowledge that those who have helped you have, I have been following this thread since it began. It's thrilling to hear that there is a publishing date. I'm sure many hereabouts will anxiously look forward to its release. Thank you for sharing this with us and best wishes for a successful outcome.

    Lou,

    I am excited too. If anything - that my children and grandchildren will be able to know my grandfather -- the way I got to know him - through his journals.

    Life is but a vapor - it's neat when something is left behind ;)

    I will keep you all posted :D
